DESCENDANTS OF JOHN SCOTT OF ROXBURY, 

MASSACHUSETTS 

JOHN 1 SCOTT, born about 1646-50, perhaps in America, prob- 
ably died in Roxbury, Mass., between 1715 and 1722; married in 
Roxbury, 29 May 1672, Hannah Duncan, daughter of Samuel and 
Mary Duncan, born in Boston, Mass., 28 Apr. 1651, died before 1722, 
probably in Roxbury. 

Children, born in Roxbury, Mass.: 

i. Hannah 2 , b. 24 July 1674, d. 7 Aug. 1674. 

ii. John, b. 11 Nov. 1675, "dyed about one hour after'', 
iii. Sarah, b. 26 Jan. 1676, "lived about six hours", 
iv. Hannah, b. 18 Aug. 1678, d. 26 Aug. 1678, "ye 2 d of that name". 

v. Mary, b. 28 July 1679, d. 30 July 1679. 
vi. Margaret, b. 6 Jan. 1680, d. 14 Jan. 1680. 

2. vii. Joseph, b. 27 Mar. 1682; m. Sarah Davis and Hannah Prior. 
viii. John, b. 8 Nov. 1683, d. 16 Nov. 1683. 

ix. Sarah, b. 1684, d. 10 Nov. 1684. 

3. x. John, b. 9 July 1686, d. unm. 1722. 

John Scott, the founder of the line of Scotts in America, with 
which this genealogy deals, was probably not born in New England, 
although there is a chance that he is identical with a John Scott, son 
of Benjamin and Margaret Scott, born in Cambridge, Mass., 2 July 
1646, living in 1671. (See appendix, p. 323.) He was an inhabit- 
ant of Roxbury, Mass., before 1672, the first mention found of him 
being in his marriage record. On 5 May 1677, he was admitted to 
the covenant of Roxbury church. He served in King Philip's War 
in 1675-6 (Bodge, p. 162). In 1683, he was paid by the town for 
"warding". He served on the "Jury of Tryalls" in 1695, and in 
that same year he received two grants of land in Woodstock, Conn. 
On 11 Apr. 1705, "Mr." John Scott was made Constable in Roxbury 
and on the fourth of the following March he was made Surveyor of 
Highways. 18 Aug. 1712, Isaac Morris, of Roxbury, with Mary, 
his wife, sold to a number of "partners" amongst them John Scott, 
six acres of land in Roxbury, and 14 July 1715, John Scott with these 
same partners, sold the land to Rev. Ebenezer Thayer. There is no 
record of his or his wife's death, but they had evidently deceased 



4 SCOTT GENEALOGY 

before 1722, for in that year, John 2 Scott, youngest son of John ! Scott, 
made his Will and although unmarried, leaves no legacy to his father 
or mother as he would have been likely to do if they were still living. 
There is a chance that it was John 2 Scott who was one of the "part- 
ners" in 1712 as he was then a man of twenty-four years of age, but 
it was more probably the senior John Scott, as it is unlikely that an 
unmarried man of twenty-four would be one of the church trustees 
as these partners evidently were. Of John Scott's ten children only 
one lived to marry and perpetuate the name. 

2. JOSEPH 2 SCOTT (John *), born in Roxbury, Mass., 27 Mar. 
1682, was baptised in Dr. Eliot's church on 7 May 1682, died, prob- 
ably in Sturbridge, after 1753; married (1), in Roxbury, 8 Feb. 
1704-5, Sarah Davis, who died in Roxbury, without issue, 1 Jan. 
1705-6. He married (2), in Roxbury, 17 May 1708, Hannah 
Prior, daughter of James and Susanna Prior, born in Boston, 
Mass., 1 Sept. 1687, death unknown. 

Children: 

4. i. Samuel 3 , b. 14 Feb. 1708-9, Roxbury; m. Sarah Chamberlain. 

5. ii. Hannah, b. 30 Apr. 1711, Roxbury; m. William Edmands and 

Ephraim Brown. 
iii. James, b. 15 Nov. 1713, Roxbury, living in 1731 but no further 
record found of him. 

6. iv. Joseph, b. 5 Nov. 1716, Roxbury; m. Mary Edmands. 

7. v. Ebenezer, b. Brookline, bapt. in West Roxbury, 29 May 1719; m. 

Mary Shapley. 
vi. John, b. Brookline, bapt. in West Roxbury, 26 Feb. 1720; no 
further record found of him. 

8. vii. Sarah, b. Brookline, bapt. in West Roxbury, 23 Dec. 1722; m. 

John Dresser. 

9. viii. Benjamin, b. 10 Mar. 1724-5, Roxbury; m. Lydia Johnson and 

Azubah Cheney. 

Joseph Scott was a weaver. He lived in Roxbury until about 
1717 when he removed to Brookline. On the 2 Mar. 1712-3, he 
petitioned the town of Roxbury, for permission to build a "pue" in 
the place where the boys had been sitting. He only remained in 
Brookline a short time and was again a resident of Roxbury in 1724. 
While living in Brookline, he evidently attended the West Parish 
church of Roxbury, as he had three children baptised there during 
those years. In Brookline, in 1717, "Mr. Joseph Scott " was appointed 
Hayward, in 1720, Surveyor of Highways, and in 1723, Constable. 
In Mar. 1723-4, he was living in Boston, but returned to Roxbury 
before the following March. Between April and November 1733, he 
removed to Dudley, Mass., having purchased land there in August of 
that year. He lived in Dudley ten years, when he removed to

Samuel Scott removed to Woodstock, Conn., about 1733, but soon 
joined his father in Dudley. There is no record of birth or baptism 
of several of his children but the town records show that he was living 
in Dudley by 1734, for in that year he was made field-driver there. 
In 1735, he was appointed fence-surveyor. Before 1745, he had 
become a resident of Oxford, and by 1755, of Charlton from which 
town he removed to the vicinity of Athol before the fall of 1756. 

In 1754, he had purchased land in "Gardner's Canada", now War- 
wick, Mass., and was living there in 1757. The last mention found 
of him is as a land-owner in Warwick in 1761, he owning one lot of 
land and his son, Samuel Scott, Jr., owning a separate one. The 



DESCENDANTS OF JOHN SCOTT 7 

records of the town of Warwick state that 6 July 1757, "money 
allowed to fortify Mr. Samuel Scott's house", and in 1759, Mr. Joseph 
Mayo, Col. Joseph Williams and Mr. Samuel Scott, were a committee 
to choose the location of a grist-mill. No record has been found of 
his or his wife's death, but he may have removed about 1765 to 
Winchester, N. H., with his sons. The town records of Winchester 
having been burned, the record of his death may have perished.

Joseph Scott evidently removed from Dudley to Sturbridge, with 
his father, but before 1753 he had left Sturbridge for Ware. He served 
in the French War as a Lieutenant and tradition states that he com- 



DESCENDANTS OF JOHN SCOTT 9 

manded a body of men called "Scott's Rangers" and that Daniel 
Knowlton was his Lieutenant. After Acadia was taken by the 
British, and the French inhabitants scattered in 1755, the Govern- 
ment sought to colonize again with New Englanders and offered large 
inducements in 1760 to the soldiers who had helped to conquer 
Canada. Joseph Scott was given a grant of land in Onslow, N. S., and 
went there to prepare for his family. He either died on the voyage 
or after his arrival for one of the items in his inventory is "pay for a 
man to go to Boston, to get (his) clothes" . Administration on his 
estate was granted to his widow Mary Scott, in 1761. She had been 
admitted to the Ware church in 1754. She removed to Brookfield, 
probably to live with her eldest son Abijah, before 11 May 1762, as 
she was "warned" by the town on that date. After her marriage to 
Daniel Knowlton, she removed to Nova Scotia, where her sons had 
become grantees in the right of their father. She was living in Hali- 
fax in 1798, when she sold by her attorney, Joseph Scott, land in 
Onslow. 

Joseph Scott appears on a muster-roll dated at Ware River Parish, 
sworn to at Worcester, 5 Jan. 1758, of Capt. Jacob Cummings' com- 
pany, Col. Israel Williams' Regt., which marched to the relief of Fort 
William Henry in Aug. 1757. Rank, Lieutenant. Marched from 
Ware to Kinderhook, 200 miles. (Mass. Archives, Muster Rolls, 
95:542.) 

Joseph Scott appears on a billeting account sworn to at Boston, 
13 Oct. 1758, rendered by Luke Bliss for victualling men who were 
sent to the relief of Fort William Henry when besieged. In Capt. 
Cummings' company. Belonged to Ware River. {Ibid., 95: 470.)

Ebenezer Scott was a resident of Dudley at the time of his marriage. 
In Feb. 1752, Mary, wife of Ebenezer Scott, was admitted to the 
Dudley church. In 1758, 1759, and 1762, he was made Deer-reive 
in Dudley and in 1763 he was a ty thing-man. He did not leave 
Dudley when his father did but probably remained there until about 
1769 when he removed to Winchester, N. H., being preceded there 
by his nephews, the sons of Samuel Scott, who had been living there 
for a number of years. "Nov. 15, 1769, Ebenezer Scott and Mary, 
his wife, from Dudley, received and admitted." (Winchester Church 
Records.) In 1776, he signed the Association Test in Winchester. 
No Will or administration of his has been found.

Benjamin 3 Scott was a miller, and lived for many years in Stur- 
bridge, Mass., removing to Fitzwilliam, N. H., about 1777. With 
his son, Barachiah, who accompanied him, he built and operated a 
sawmill in Fitzwilliam. His family were all established in homes of 
their own before 1790, for he appears in the Census with only himself 
and wife as members of his family. Three of his sons and one grand- 
son became physicians. His death is recorded at Sturbridge and he 
may have been living there at the time, or he may have died when 
on a visit to that town. There is no Will or Administration of his 
recorded in either Worcester Co., Mass., or Cheshire Co., N. H. 

He served in the Revolution as Sergeant of Capt. Timothy Parker's 
company of Minute-Men which marched on the Alarm of April 19, 
1775. Service 14 days. (Mass. Soldiers and Sailors in the Revolu- 
tion, vol. 14, p. 915.)

Mary Trott, daughter of John and Mary (Chamberlain) Trott, 
baptised in West Roxbury, 6 June 1736, died in Richmond, N. H.,

viii. Lona, born probably about 1774; m. 21 Jan. 1800, Richmond, Asa 
Gaskill, of Maidstone, Vt. They were living in Maidstone 
later and Asa was there as late as 1833. It is not known where 
they went and no one of the name now (1917) lives in Maid* 
stone. 

41. ix. Susanna, b. about 1778; m. Timothy Martin. 

The marriage of John Scott in Boston, Mass., proves that he 
returned to Roxbury or Boston. Probably he spent some time with 
his kin in Roxbury, and it is also probable that Mary Trott was a 
relative since her mother was a Chamberlain as was also his mother. 
That this John Scott was a son of Samuel cannot be doubted. He 
was made a grantee of the same towns as his brothers, Abraham, 
James, and Samuel, he removed to N. H. about the same time they 
did, his wife was a member of the Winchester Church with them, etc. 
His marriage is proven in a letter of Dr. Nathaniel Harvey Scott of 
Wolfeborough in 1916 in which he states that his grandfather, Jona- 
than Boyden Scott, once told him that his (J. B. S.'s) grandmother's 
name was Trott, and after a long search the marriage was found on 
the Trinity Church records. 

After his marriage, he lived in Charlton, Mass., where his father 
was living but evidently attended church in Dudley as in Sept. 1757, 
Mary, wife of John Scott of Charlton, was admitted a member of 
that church. In 1759, they had removed to Dudley, for in that year 
John Scott and his wife Mary and their child, were warned to depart 
the town. In spite of the warning, which was a mere formality in 
many instances, they remained in Dudley until 1763, when they 
went to Richmond, N. H. He seems to have been the only son of 
Samuel, who did not go to Warwick with their father, but he was 
made a grantee with them of Claremont and Winchester, as well as 
of Richmond. He settled in the last town near the border line of 
Winchester in a part of Richmond that was afterwards annexed to 
Winchester. 

The Winchester, N. H., Church Records state that, "May 15, 
1768, Mary, wife of John Scott, being dismissed and recommended by 
the Church in Dudley, was accepted by this Church" and admitted 
to Full Communion. 



14 SCOTT GENEALOGY 

John Scott served the town of Richmond as Selectman in 1766, 
Constable in 1767, and Ty thing-man in 1775. In 1776, he signed the 
Association Test in Richmond. 

According to the Census of 1790, his family consisted of himself, 
one male below sixteen years and three females. His son John Scott, 
Jr., died just before the taking of the Census and the male under six- 
teen was probably his orphaned grandson, Jonathan Boyden Scott. 
It seems probable that his second wife Joanna was dead, and that the 
three females were his daughters, Elizabeth, Lona, and Susanna, who 
were all unmarried in 1790. This supposition is borne out by the 
fact that John Scott's third marriage, occurring when he was about 
seventy-four, was probably occasioned by the marriages of these 
daughters, which threatened to leave him alone. An examination 
of the tax lists of Richmond show him there just after this third 
marriage, but he doesn't appear in the list of 1810 nor later. The 
only Scott in the tax list of 1810, is Lemuel Scott. John, Jr., was 
dead, Luke had removed to Pennsylvania, and it is obvious that 
John Scott, Sr., had also deceased.

his life. He was a grantee of Claremont, N. H., with his brothers,

13. SAMUEL 4 SCOTT (Samuel 3 , Joseph 2 , John l ) , born in Dudley, 
Mass., about 1740, died in Barre, Vt., about 1794; married in Win- 
chester, N. H., 17 Sept. 1766, Abigail (Goss?) who died after 1806. 

Children baptised in Winchester, N. H. : 

53. i. Samuel 5 , bapt. 16 Aug. 1767; m. Melicent Mack. 

54. ii. Philip, bapt. 30 Apr. 1769; m. Anne Talman. 

Samuel Scott went with his father to Warwick, Mass., receiving 
one of the three houselots granted the latter in that town. He was 
an original grantee of Claremont, N. H., with his brothers, John and 
James. He lived in Winchester, N. H., removing there about 1760 
and remaining until after 1780. Before 1790, he had removed to 
Barre, then called " Wildersburg", Vt., and in the Census of that year 
he is recorded with a family consisting of three males above sixteen 
years, one male below sixteen, and two females. The deeds of settle- 
ment of his estate apparently show only the two sons, Samuel and 
Philip, but he may have had a younger son or a daughter in 1790. 
There is some reason for thinking that his wife's name may have been 
Goss. It was illegible to the copyist of the Winchester records and 
the original records have been burned. Abigail was baptised in 
Winchester with her son Samuel, 16 Aug. 1767. 

Samuel Scott signed the Association Test in Winchester, in 1776. 
He served in the Revolution as Private in Capt. Samuel Wright's 
company, Col. Nichols' regiment, which marched from Winchester 
and joined the Northern Continental Army at Bennington and Still- 
water, 23 July 1777. He also served in Col. Samuel Ashley's regi-

20 SCOTT GENEALOGY 

14. ISAAC 4 SCOTT (Samuel 8 , Joseph 2 , John l ) , baptised in Dud- 
ley, Mass., 11 Nov. 1744, death unknown; married about 1768, 
Lydia , birth, death, and parentage unknown. 

Children baptised in Winchester, N. H. : 

i. Levinah 6 , bapt. 12 Feb. 1769. 

ii. Salmon, bapt. 2 Dec. 1770. 
iii. Abigail, bapt. 29 Dec. 1773. 
iv. Lydia, bapt. 20 Aug. 1775. 

v. Chloe, bapt. June 1778. 
vi. Lucinda, bapt. July 1783. 

Isaac Scott removed first to Richmond but did not stay long as he 
was admitted to the church in Winchester, N. H., 12 Feb. 1769. He 
signed the Association Test in Winchester, in 1776. He evidently 
left Winchester, between 1784 and 1790. The Census of 1790 gives 
only one Isaac Scott in New Hampshire or Vermont. This was 
Isaac Scott of Salisbury, Vt., who had a family consisting of two 
males above sixteen years, and six females, which exactly suits Isaac 4 
Scott. He was evidently a resident of that part of Salisbury which 
became Leicester. The deeds of the latter town show that Isaac 
Scott deeded land to Salmon Scott, 1 Dec. 1792 and on 4 July 1792, 
he deeded land to one Parker, and on 5 July to Webster. He was 
in Leicester when the town was organized on 29 Mar. 1786-7 and 
later was Surveyor of Highways. The town clerk of Leicester, who 
sent the above deed references in 1916, reported that that was all there 
was about him on the records. The Probate for this section was 
burned in 1850. He probably removed about the time he sold the 
land if the town clerk made an exhaustive search.

Mass., 8 Apr. 1778, her cousin, Benjamin Dresser, son of John and 
Sarah (Scott) Dresser, born in Charlton, Mass., 8 Sept. 1752, death 
unknown. 

Benjamin Dresser appears in the Census of 1790, as a resident of 
Charlton, Mass., with the following family, one male above sixteen 
years, three males below sixteen and one female. There is no other 
record of him in Worcester Co., nor in Cheshire Co., N. H., and it 
is probable that he removed from Charlton after 1791. 

Worcester Co. Deeds, 111: 571. Benjamin Dresser of Charlton, sells to 
John, Luther, and Calvin Ammidown of Charlton, land in Charlton, 11 Apr.

56. vi. Lucy, b. 13 Mar. 1777, Horton; m. Thomas Robertson. 
vii. Joseph, b. 1 Jan. 1781, Horton. 

Joseph Scott removed with his mother and the family to Onslow, 
N. S., and became a man of prominence in the new settlement. He 
had seen military service before his removal to Nova Scotia. He 
appears on a roll of men enlisted for the reduction of Canada by 
Lieut. Knowlton, 24 Mar. 1760, his birthplace being given as Stur- 
bridge and his age as nineteen years. His first child was born in 
Onslow but about 1767, he is supposed to have removed to Horton, 
King's Co., N. S., and later to have returned to Onslow. His children 
are recorded at Onslow as born in Horton, but the land records call 
him "of Onslow" in 1771 and 1776, so it seems probable that only 
two children were born in Horton and that he returned to Onslow 



.

before 1771, and that the births were carelessly entered. He removed 
to Truro before 1797. He was Sheriff of Colchester Co., for many 
years and in 1782 was "Deputy Provost Marshal of Halifax County", 
this being before the establishment of Colchester Co. 

No Will or Administration has been found, since no record of his 
death or where it occurred is known.

Rebecca , birth and death unknown. 

The children of Asa Scott were presumably: 

i. Asa 5 . 
ii. John D. 
iii. Mary. 

Asa Scott appears on a list of men enlisted by Lieut. Knowlton 
"for His Majesty's Service" for the total reduction of Canada in 
1760, son of Joseph Scott of Ware River, born in Dudley, Mass., age 
eighteen years. 

He removed to Onslow, N. S., with his mother and family. Before 
1773, he had removed to Sackville and by 1798 was in Birch Cove. 
He settled finally in Halifax, where he presumably died. It is possi- 
ble that he removed to New York City but, as in 1818 he would be

seventy-six years old, it seems more likely that he would not have 
started life in a new place and that it was a son Asa 5 who removed 
to New York, and that Asa 4 had died before 1818.

Ebenezer Scott signed the Association Test, in Winchester, in 1776. 
He served under Capt. John Houghton, Col. Baldwin's regiment, 
in 1776. He also fought at Ticonderoga. (Rev. Rolls, N. H., 1 : 427, 
2:55.) 

In the Census of 1790, there is in Winchester, an Ebenezer Scott, 
with four males above sixteen, and four females in his family. It is 
probable that Ebenezer 4 Scott remained with his father, Ebenezer 3 
Scott, and is listed as a member of his family with his wife and children. 
If the opposite was the case and the father was living with Ebenezer 4 
Scott, then the Census return would read family of Ebenezer Scott, 
Jr. Ebenezer 3 had only two sons, one of whom, Abel, is in the Cen- 
sus as head of family. His daughters were all married before 1790. 
His son Ebenezer 4 did not marry until he was thirty-five and at the 
time of the Census had a family of three girls and his wife, evidently 
the four females in the Census, as his mother had died in 1785. This 
leaves two males in the report not accounted for, but they may have 
been helpers, or relatives of his wife.

64. i. Lucy 5 , b. 15 Sept. 1784; m. Alden Ripley. 

65. ii. Abel, b. 24 Mar. 1787; m. Elizabeth Follett. 

Abel Scott was a farmer and lived in Winchester, N. H., all his life. 
He appears in the Census of 1790, with two males above sixteen years, 
two males below sixteen, and two females. The probability is that 
he had more children but as the records of Winchester are gone and 
there is no Will or Administration, it has been impossible to ascertain 
if they arrived at age or not, however as there is no mention of them

DESCENDANTS OF JOHN SCOTT 29 

Dr. Amasa Scott removed to Belchertown, Mass., before 1781 and 
began the practice of medicine. He served in the Revolution as a 
private in Col. Holman's regiment, of Massachusetts militia. He 
was wounded by a musket ball in his right leg at the Battle of White 
Plains in 1776, and was pensioned therefor, on 4 Mar. 1795, until 16 
May 1824. His pension papers state that he was a resident of Nor- 
wich, Vt., in 1823, having previously resided at Haverhill, N. H., 
and before that at Belchertown, Mass. (Rev. War Claims, S. File 
No. 19763.) He also served as a private in Capt. Gideon Stebbins* 
company, Fourth Hampshire Co. regiment, belonged on Alarm list. 
Company marched to Northampton, June 1782. Roll dated at 
Belchertown. (Mass. Soldiers and Sailors in the Revolution, 14 : 910.) 
He bought land in Belchertown, Mass., in 1781 and was still there in 
1790 as the Census shows. He had in that year in his family two 
males above sixteen years, one below, and three females. About 
1792, he removed to Haverhill, N. H.; succeeded Dr. Phelps whose 
house he bought and used as a private hospital until 1807, when he 
sold the estate. Between 1807 and 1815 he was evidently a resident 
of Peacham, Vt., as his daughters married in that town and his son 
was a resident there while away at college. It is probable that he 
went there when his brother, Dr. William Scott, removed to Crafts- 
bury. He lived finally in Norwich, Vt., but may have lived across 
the river in Hanover for a short time. During his residence at Haver- 
hill he served as moderator in 1801-2, and held other town offices. 

He was evidently a skilful physician. During the spotted fever 
outbreak in 1815, when the physician of Warren had lost his life in 
the dreaded epidemic, the town sent to Hanover for Dr. Scott and 
it is recorded that he was more successful than all the other physicians 
in handling the disease, many of his patients recovering. 

His wife's brother was Dr. Estes Howe, the first physician of Bel- 
chertown, and it is probable that Dr. Scott learned his profession of 
him. 

Samuel Howe died in 1784 and Administration was granted to his 
widow Hannah. His personal property was divided to his children, 
Sylvanus; Estes; Moses; Benjamin Howe; Elizabeth, wife of Timo- 
thy Rice; Sarah, wife of Ezra Clark; Hannah, wife of Samuel Brad- 
ford, and Ann Howe, in March, 1785. On the 22 Apr. following, the 
real estate was divided and in the plan Ann is called "Ann Scott". 
May 28, 1793, Amasa Scott petitions for an accounting by the admin- 
istrators, and states that his wife is an heir to the deceased. 

Administration on the estate of Amasa Scott, late of Norwich, Vt., 
was granted to Constant Murdoch of Norwich, 3 June 1824, and the 
residue was distributed to the heirs (unnamed) 10 Dec. 1827. In the 
inventory are mentioned medical books and instruments.

Mendon, with his third wife, Prudence (Scott) (Gerould) Cutler, and 
all their children, excepting little Mary Gerould, who was left at 
school in Sturbridge. They were the only family in town during the 
winter of 1789-90. Their nearest neighbor was Ashbel Shepard who 
lived six miles south in Greensboro. These two families made up 
the total population of what is now Orleans County during that win- 
ter. Their grain was brought from Newbury on a sled, over fifty 
miles across snow from four to six feet deep. In the middle of the 
winter Mary Gerould came home. She was brought by Col. Joseph 
Scott, her uncle, as far as Ryegate, Vt., where she stopped for two 
weeks at the home of Squire Page. From there she was conveyed 
to the house of Deacon Elkins in Peacham, whose daughter Sabra 
had just married Mary's uncle, Dr. William Scott. After a short 
visit in Peacham, she went to Cabot Plain on horseback, and next 
morning reached home on a sled drawn by three young men, one of 
whom was her step-brother, Nathan Cutler. It was a big journey 
for a girl of thirteen years, in those days.

DESCENDANTS OF JOHN SCOTT 38 

always ready to help anything that would advance the interests of 
the town. He represented the town in the Vermont Legislature in 
1794, 1797, 1798, 1815, 1817, 1825. He was judge of probate and 
held the office of Sheriff of Orleans Co., for fourteen years. He also

few years later settled at Clymer, where he died in 1828 on the home- 
stead afterwards occupied by his son Rufus Scott. At the first call 
to fight the British in 1812 he responded and served his country well 
in that war, although there is no official record extant of his services.

A John Whitaker married in Swanzey, 22 Dec. 1816, Sally Dickin- 
son. A Sally Whitaker died in Keene, N. H., October 1849, in eighty- 
fourth year. The above marriage may be of a son to John and 
Sarah (Scott) Whitaker in which case the death record belongs to 
Sarah Scott, but if the marriage is a second marriage of the above 
John Whitaker, then the death probably refers to Sally Dickinson.

40. ELIZABETH 5 SCOTT (John\ Samuel \ Joseph 2 , John 1 ), 
born in Richmond, N. H., about 1770, died probably about 1808 in 
Richmond; married in Richmond, N. H., 25 Dec. 1799, Stephen 
Darling, son of Joseph and Mary (Fish) Darling, born in Mendon, 
Mass., 21 Aug. 1738, died probably between 1810-20 in Pennsylvania. 
He married first, in Mendon, Mass., 25 Dec. 1760, Prudence White, 
daughter of Aaron and Susanna (Benson) White, born in Mendon, 
14 Mar. 1743, died in Richmond, N. H., 12 Apr. 1799. 

The full list of Stephen Darling's children was as follows: 

By first wife, Prudence White : 

i. Prudence Darling, b. 18 June 1761, d. 8 Jan. 1796, Richmond, 

N.H. 
ii. Stephen Darling, b. 25 Nov. 1762. 
iii. Lydia Darling, b. 5 Dec. 1764. 
iv. Susanna Darling, b. 3 Feb. 1767. 

v. Chloe Darling, b. 10 May 1769; m. Luke Scott (p. 37). 
vi. Silas Darling, b. 25 July 1771. 
vii. Lucy Darling, b. 5 Aug. 1773; m. Charles Carpenter. 

By second wife, Elizabeth Scott: 

viii. Prudence, b. about 1800, Richmond, N. H., d. in Tioga Co., Pa., 
about 1840. She was engaged to be married when young and 
the day was set for the ceremony when the man ran away with her 
sister. She afterwards became despondent and lived with three 
men as a common-law wife. Her children all took their father's 
name, so they could not have been considered illegitimate, 
although there is no record or tradition of a marriage ceremony 
being performed. Her first child, Hiram Freeborn, son of Hiram 
Freeborn, was born about 1819, and was killed in the Civil War. 
Her second child, Archibald Darling Knox, son of James Knox, 
b. 3 Oct. 1821, was adopted by his uncle, Archibald Knox. She 
became the mother of three children by Adolphus Potter, namely, 
Darling Potter, b. 18 Feb. 1829, Mary Potter and Almira Potter, 
b. 4 Sept. 1837. After her death, Adolphus Potter married for 
the third time and had two more children. 
ix. Jacob Darling. 
x. Elizabeth Darling, presumably the one who married Prudence's 

betrothed. 
xi. Luke Darling, b. 19 Mar. 1806; m. 13 Mar. 1838, Mary Rath- 
bone, dau. of Rev. David and Nancy (Wales) Rathbone. 

Stephen Darling removed to Winchester, N. H., before 1790, as 
he was a resident there, according to the Census of that year, with a 
family consisting of himself and two females, one being his wife, 
Prudence, and the other probably his daughter Prudence. He 
removed from Winchester to Richmond, N. H., and lived on the farm 
Luke Scott had owned before his removal to Swanzey. In 1807, he 
sold his land in Richmond and removed to Pennsylvania, where his 



DESCENDANTS OF JOHN SCOTT 39 

daughters had settled. He appears in the Census of 1810, as a resi- 
dent of Delmar Township, Tioga Co., Pa., with one male under 
ten years, one male over ten and under sixteen, and one female over 
ten and under sixteen, so it is evident that his wife had died. She 
probably died before he went to Pennsylvania. In the Census of 
1820, he does not appear, and as tradition tells that his son Luke 
was left an orphan when a little boy, it is probable that he died shortly 
after 1810. 

41. SUSANNA 6 SCOTT (John 4 , Samuel*, Joseph*, John 1 ), 
born about 1778, Richmond, N. H., died soon after 1815; married 
7 Sept. 1806, Richmond, N. H., Timothy Martin, son of Peter and

Jan. and Feb. 1815.

James Scott lived in Winchester all his life. He was a blacksmith 
and farmer. There is nothing to show whether his children by 
Eunice Lawrence ever lived with him or not, but they lived in New 
York where she did and he does not mention them in his Will, so 
presumably he arranged for them when he separated from their 
mother. There was, however, intercourse, between the children of 
the two wives, for a descendant of Elijah remembers William Hum- 
phrey Scott coming to visit them in New York when she was a tiny 
child.

Samuel Scott removed from Barre to Montpelier before 1800. He 
served under Capt. Timothy Hubbard, General Davis, in the War 
of 1812. His name appears on a roll of Plattsburg Volunteers made 
at Burlington, Vt., 10 Sept. 1814. Melicent Mack's elder sister 
Eunice, married Micaiah Ingham and removed to Berlin, Vt. She 
was living there in 1791 and had removed to Brookfield, Vt., by 1792. 
She had a son Alfred Ingham. It is probable that Samuel Scott met 
Melicent Mack while she was visiting her sister. Melicent spent the 
last of her life with her son Alfred and presumably died in Montpelier, 
aged.

Ephraim Scott seems to have been the only one of Joseph Scott's 
grandchildren who returned to the United States. The exact date 
of his coming is not known but it was before 1789, for in June of that 
year he was married in Brookfield, and December he was made 
schoolmaster in Ware, receiving the following endorsement which is 
still in existence: 

"This Certifies that Ephraim Scott of Ware appears to be a Person of Sober 
life and Conversation and as far as it has come to our Knowledge he is Possest 
with those Principles of Virtue & Morality as is injoined by Law for a School 
Master to be Possest with. 

Samuel Dunsmoor 
John Quinten Select 

Ware Dec. y e 28, 1789 David Brown Men 

Isaac Pepper for Ware. 

Wm. Breckenridge, Jr" 

He continued to teach school in Ware, and the following certifi- 
cates are treasured by his descendants: 

"This may certify that I have reason to believe Mr. Ephraim Scott is 
well qualified to teach children to read and write and to instruct them in 
the english language, as well as in arithmetic, orthography and decent 
behaviour, 

Reuben Moss, A.M." 

"This certifies that Mr. Ephraim Scott in my opinion is qualified to keep 
an English School, 

Thomas Holt 
Hardwick Feb. 6, 1797. Pastor of Chh." 



DESCENDANTS OF JOHN SCOTT 55 

After he ceased teaching he became a member of the school com- 
mittee, in Ware and this receipt was recently given to his grandson, 
George Washington Scott, by a descendant of Phille Morse: 

"Rec d of Mes rs Phille & Calvin Morse, twenty Six dollars fifty cents in 
full for their taxes committed to me for to collect for building a new Scool 
house in the first School District in the year 1808 I say Rec d by me April 5 th 
1809 Ware 
$26.50 Eph m Scott" 

Capt. Scott was also a farmer and extensive land-owner. Retain- 
ing always his interest in school matters, he gave to the town of Ware 
a piece of real estate, to be used forever as a school lot. Owing to 
the burning of the records, the terms of the bequest are forgotten 
and the town has sold the lot. For a long time the statement of the 
terms was considered a tradition, but proof is in existence as in a 
deed from Capt. Scott later (recorded in the Hampshire County 
Registry) is the following clause, "reserving for the use of the first 
School District in said Ware for a School house lot and yard the 
same lot of ground that I the said Scott leased to said District for 
that purpose". His descendants have long known of this betrayal 
of his trust by the town of Ware, but have never chosen to take back 
the land. 

Capt. Scott was early interested in military matters. It is very 
probable that he was a member of the military company of Ware for 
some time before he was commissioned lieutenant, but there is no 
extant record of this fact. He was commissioned by the Common- 
wealth of Massachusetts, "Ensign" in the Fifth Regiment, First 
Brigade, Fourth Division of the Massachusetts Militia, 24 Aug. 1802; 
promoted "Lieutenant", 9 May 1806; promoted "Captain", 28 
Aug. 1806. He served during the War of 1812-14 in Boston, Mass. 
The "Orderly Book of Capt. Ephraim Scott's Company of Infantry, 
May 1811", is still in existence and gives a good history of his activities 
in the War. When in 1814, the British appeared off Boston Harbor, 
Capt. Scott and a detachment consisting of Sergeant Breckenridge, 
a drummer and twenty-four privates went to the defence of Boston. 
Capt. Scott remained in command until 29 May 1815 when he 
received his discharge, being nearly fifty years of age. Breckenridge, 
his Sergeant, was asked once when Capt. Scott was first an officer and 
he replied, "I can't exactly tell but I believe he was Orderly Sergeant 
under Pontius Pilate". It is very probable that his service extended 
over at least thirty years of his life 

Capt. Scott was also employed largely in contracting, apparently 
in building stone-wharves, etc. In 1811 he was in Richmond, Va., 
writing from there that he expected to return in August to Ware. 
He evidently did this but went back to Richmond, before March, 
1812, accompanied by his son William, who died unmarried before 



56 SCOTT GENEALOGY 

Capt. Scott deceased. From there he wrote home the following 
interesting letters: 

Richmond Virginia June 30 1811. 

Dear Son, we Rec d your letter bearing date the 13 th instant which informed 
us that you were all well &c and the further news that you therein wrote was 
very agreeable to us though we were very much put to it to Read it (there 
appeared to be some Information about things more than you ever sent us 
before (I have wrote a letter to You which I think likely you may have had 
before now) there was a Direction therein for you to go to South Hadley & 
call on Capt. A. Cooly for a Hundred & fifty dollars which he agreed to pay 
you for me a part of which at least 50$ is to be paid to Gideon Shaw in order 
to enable him to come to Richmond (the other letter contains Directions 
therefore I shall not write them in this) tell him, Shaw, it is said to be the 
best time in Richmond for buiseness that ever was. If he should come he 
had better come Soon as Possable, there is jobbing plenty giting stone down 
for paithing Streets, men make five or 10$ per day &c. Your uncle Morse's 
Factory, tell him If I should live to or at Home, I should likely be as forward 
in promoting the Publick good as my abilitys would admit of. If the people 
would subscribe two thousand dollars & no other man would go on with it 
perhaps I might myself, (we expect to git through with the heft of our Jobb 
in 3 or 4 weeks. We are glad to hear about Your fence & improvement on 
the ould farm, that is the surest way for a lively hood. I expect to be home 
Sometime in Agust (I did not expect that you would pay Jos. Field Esq. & 
Upham but maybe you can help them a little out of this last 150$ after G d 
Shaw is paid 50 or thereabouts &c. 

If we read you letter Right you stated that you had paid Fields & Upham 
(I can not think how) I wish you to send me an explanation to that, have they 
attached property. 

I have Rec d a letter from Gid Shaw Dated June 27 at Ware he informing 
me that he is all Redy to come on only is waiting for a letter from me. (You 
had better see him as I have sent to you to furnish him with fifty dollars ex- 
pense Money. You git it of Capt. Cooly, tell him it is all I can let him have 
till he gits here — tell him in answer to what he wrote about the Black people 
that it is a buisness that I should have no hand in (tell him the household 
furniture which he spoke for is Redy for Him) you will see him amediately

as you rec d this. Yours W m . Scott. To E. Scott, Ware. 

These two letters are written on the same sheet of foolscap paper 
and addressed on the outside, being sealed with old-fashioned wafers. 

On the 15 May 1818, Ephraim Scott, Joshua Lazell, Ephraim Scott, 
Jr., all of Ware, and John Ainsworth, of Brookfield, entered into an 
agreement with the Boston and Roxbury Mill Corporation, "to 
split and prepare in a suitable manner, rocks and stones from the 
Sumner ledge on the Dedham turnpike in said Roxbury", the stone 

5 



58 SCOTT GENEALOGY 

to be used to make a sea-wall. On the 3 May preceding, Ephraim 
Scott, Jr., wrote from Roxbury to his father in Ware, and said, "I 
come to Roxbury & begun with A. D. Williams on 23 Apl to work 
on his farm". Ellis Coney Scott was at this time in Boston and 
the letter shows that they are expecting their father to join them. 
Whether he went to Roxbury or not, there is nothing to show but 
if so, he could not have remained there very long because the next 
year on the 14 June 1819, he wrote to Ephraim, Jr., then in Ware, 
from Plymouth, Montgomery Co., Pa., and said in his letter, "We are 
Situated among the friend kwakers who are a people of good morrals 
& use no ardent Sperets", and adds "direct your letter to the Phila- 
delphia Post Office to the Care of Capt. Thomas Durkee in that case 
we Shall git them immediately". The letter shows that he is digging 
a canal but has not yet begun to blast. On this same sheet of paper 
is a letter from Ellis Coney Scott showing he was with his father on 
this work which, he states, "is very hard I think the hardest that 
ever was". 

Molly Coney, Capt. Scott's wife, left a sweet and fragrant memory 
that persists to the present day. Many of the treasured possessions 
of the family were lost in a fire but her sampler has been preserved 
and now belongs to her great-granddaughter. It is beautifully 
worked and is inscribed: 

Molley Coney is my name, 

New England is my station, 
Stoughtonham is my dwelling place 

And Christ is my salvation. 
I was born in July 20, 1758 and in November 

1773 I wrought this with my needle. 

About 1824, Capt. Scott removed from Ware to Belchertown, 
where he spent the remainder of his life. The following anecdote of 
him in his latter days is very characteristic. He was attending a 
prayer meeting in Belchertown. The usual invitation was given for 
those who desired the prayers of the congregation to arise. For a 
while no one moved and then Capt. Scott rose in his pew, and 
standing there said, "The prayers of the righteous avail much, but 
the prayers of the wicked are an abomination to the Lord, so", added 
Capt. Scott, "if there is a thoroughly righteous man here, I would 
like to have him rise and pray for me". But no one arose. 

He drew up a Will but it was never proved and administration on 
his estate was granted to Myron Lawrence, 2 Nov. 1841. The Will 
reads: 

I, Ephraim Scott of Belchertown, in the County of Hampshire and Com- 
monwealth of Mass. co(n)si(d)ering the uncertanty of this mortal life and 
being of Sound mind memory Blessed Almighty God for the same do make and

Capt. Ephraim Scott and Molly Coney sleep side by side on a 
sunny slope in the Ware Graveyard. Their gravestone bears the 
following inscription of which the verse was composed by Captain 
Scott, himself:

Search thine own heart and you will be well employed.

Polly Scott was taken by her mother to Vermont and tradition 
tells that she never saw her brothers but once again. Jonathan 
Blood was a farmer, and had a large farm in Putney, Vt. About 
1835, his farm was burned, all buildings with one hundred cows, 
grain, fodder, farming tools, etc., were a total loss, only the milk 
house remained standing. He left Putney and settled in New York, 
but brooded over his loss so much that he finally became mentally 
ill. He was obsessed with the idea that he would have to go to the 
poorhouse, and that his wife might give away her string of gold

after his marriage, he removed to Livermore, Me., where he lost two

William Humphrey Scott removed to New York and remained 
there until after 1843. Before 1848, he removed to Wisconsin, where 
he settled on a large farm. By different subdivisions in the next few 
years, this farm fell successively in Oshkosh, Neenah, and Vinland, 
so although his last three children were all born in the same 
house they were born in three different towns. The farm is now in 
Vinland, Wis.

It has been impossible to glean much in regard to John Samuel Scott 
so far as the vital records of his family are concerned. A nephew of 
his, Henry Schellenger, writes of him in 1916, "Samuel Scott, my 
uncle, married and lived in Vermont, had a son. He left there and 
went to South America, Peru, I think, came back to Iowa, married 
again and had one daughter who married a Palmer in the vicinity of 
Davenport, Iowa". Another nephew, Franklin A. Scott, wrote of 
him in 1913, "My uncle, John Samuel Scott, was in Cuba 20 years, 
clerk on a coffee plantation, removed to Geneseo, N. Y., and was 
clerk for General Wadsworth for awhile and then went into business 
for himself. He removed to Branch Co., Mich., and married, second, 
a widow with two daughters. By her he had two daughters, the 
eldest married, at Maple Grove, a man Barton Palmer, had two

Baptist clergyman and was pastor of churches in Canton, Russell, 
Madrid, and other towns in New York. He was a well known Aboli- 
tionist and before the Civil War he assisted many slaves to escape, 
his home being one of the stations on the so-called "Underground 
Railway". After the birth of his last child, he removed to Michigan 
and served in the Baptist ministry in that State for thirty-nine years.

enough money to buy a bureau, which is now in the possession of her

Ephraim 6 Scott removed from Ware to Belchertown with his 
father in 1824. After the birth of two children there, he removed to 
Fredonia, N. Y., where his fifth child was born. From Fredonia, 
the family went West but the records sent by the descendants of the 
daughter, Ann Maria, state that she was born in Lowell, Mass., so it 
is probable that the family lived there for a short time. On the first 
of November in 1839, Ephraim Scott died and was followed on the 
twenty-eighth of the same month by his eldest son, William Coney 
Scott, then a boy of fourteen. The loss of husband and son in that 
wild country, far from her home, made life very hard for his wife and 
after April 1840, she returned to Belchertown, Mass., with her family 
and there the children grew up. Later the family returned to the 
West, this time to Illinois, where Lydia (Sherman) Scott had cousins 
by the name of Lazell. Lydia was buried in Princeville, and her son, 
George Washington Scott, in after years, had his father's body 
brought to Princeville and reinterred beside his mother. 

The following letters of Ephraim 6 Scott have been preserved :

Saybrook, March 21st 1841. 
Dear Brothers & Father. 

I take this opportunity to inform you that we are all well, hoping these will 
find you in the same choice blessing bestowed on the human family. I rec'd 
your letter Thursday Baring date 15th Feb. stating death of one who first 
gave me existance, one who watched over my childhood and who reared with 
much anxiety her children with her parental affections and Motherly Care till 
all were advanced to manhood and became on this wide world actors for them- 
selves and separated far and wide apart, twice has been called to the bereft- 
ment of her two oldest offsprings in a distant clime, without connections of 
friends and has gone never to return, has sustained all the losses and crosses 
of this Life which astonishes me when I think of what that woman has gone 
through and lived to see over 80 years of Pilgramage here on earth. Oh, it is 



92 SCOTT GENEALOGY 

Mother who has paid the Last debt of nature gone never to return, that hand 
which is mighty to save to the Last can support in every trial and distress 
here and take to himself in the Last struggle, to himself in the Everlasting 
realms of Bliss. 

Your mother's death gave me quite a shock. I had some thoughts that I 
see her this summer but Death has closed the scene nevermore to meet till 
the last trump shall sound come to Judgement. 

You wrote her confinement to 2 weeks which (is) short but her Last hours 
very severe though the all killing conqueror was hard to discourage yet as the 
Spirit went to God who gave it as we have all hopes to be there and meet its 
God. In Peace to sing songs of Praise forevermore. — 
To my father 

The Partner of your life has left you alone & quit this world in Peace, 
shortly your turn will come, at the most that you will be called upon to pay 
the Last Debt of Nature and in another world appear, be prepared to meet 
your god, not like (ly) I shall see you again in this world and perhaps not 
another letter, the time is short at the most, be Patient and bear your afflic- 
tion with resignation, the will of our father which is in Heaven be done, so 
I must bid Farewell. 

Give respects to cousin Claricy Andrews for her care she took of my Mother 
in her Last sickness. . . . Likewise Dorcas who was in the Last dieing 
moments of Mother which was a great satisfaction. ... I had not heard 
of uncle Eben's death before, I was going out there the day I reed your letter. 
I have not heard from Lydia since last Spring till now. . . . Our babes 
are very worresome and quite a task to take care of them but they will soon 
be large and less care, I hope to take care to bring them up but must take it 
as it comes. I want to see you much your home will now be lonesome. 
. . . Your brother Ellis C. Scott. 

Dear Father and Brothers. As E. has left part of the sheet vacant I 
thought I would write you a few lines as I f eell to sympathize with you in your 
present afflictions in the loss of our Dear Mother altho I never lost a parent 
but Dear Brothers and Sisters I have had to part with by death and I find 
that death makes a very lonesome house let its victim be ever so young but a 
dear Parent how great the loss and how heavy the stroke I think that you 
must be very lonely indeed now but nearest and dearest friends must part as 
death is in our land calling our friends one after another to the cold and silent 
tomb we see there is no way of getting away from it neither is there any 
respect of persons with God he takes those of our friends he sees fit and let 
us remember that we must shortly die and how soon we know not but I hope 
we shall all be prepared to go when we are called for and have our peace made 
with God that we may all as a family meet in heaven where parting will be 
no more I would therefore recommend you one and all to that Dear Saviour 
who died for us and who can bind up the broken hearted, put your trust in 
him Dear Friends and he will support you in your present affliction and 
remember that your loss may be her eternal gain I hope it may be a sanctified 
affliction to us all and enable us to put our trust in that friend that sticketh 
closer than a Brother and who is able to carry us through all our troubles and 
afflictions that we are called to pass through here and finally save us in his 
kingdom is the sincere wish of your friend S. S.

But I must tell you a little about our dear babes and close, they are very 
smart indeed they are six months old the last day of Feb. we call them George 
Washington and Susan Coney I wish our Dear Mother could have seen them 
before she died she would have been delighted with them, they are as playful 
as little lambs we think a great deal of them my health is not very good but 
comfortable, the rest are well and we all unite in sending love to our dear 
friends and sister Dorcas with the rest I too would thank her for kindness to 
our dear Mother in her last sickness and wish much health and prosperity 
I should like very much to see you all and hope you will make it convenient 
to come out this way as I think you would like the country very much, but 
I must close, from your sister, 

Sophia Scott.

Saybrook 

Mar 22 



It is probable that they were living in Saybrook, Pa., when this 
letter was written. 

On April 19, 1840, Ellis C. Scott wrote to his "Dear Brothers and 
Parents" a long letter. They apparently are all much worried over 
Lydia, the widow of Ephraim Scott, Jr., who died in 1839. He says, 
"I should have had a letter from Lydia but have not had any nor 
don't know whether I shall. I wrote to her when I wrote to you 
requesting her to write as soon as they got the letter, but nobody 
knows what will become of them, their situation is very bad no doubt 
but they are used to adversity to the extreme . . . the God that 
made them will protect them, if you have had a letter I wish you would 
write, the Portland Sally meant is 130 miles up the Lake from here 
. . . then they are 130 miles south from that place I wrote to 
them where uncle Ebenezer Shearman lived and if she wanted to go 
East, she could get help but the ride is to great I think to go Back, 
that is all I know. ... I am now with Father Doolittle . . . 
if you get a letter from Lydia you had better write her to leave that part 
before they all die off". Sophia writes again on the same sheet, a 
long letter and in it she says, "It has been a long time since I have 
heard from any of you till since my Dear E. has returned this way 
and I can tell you that I am very glad to hear from you once more. 
. . . I was very glad to hear once more from our dear Lydia to 
know where she was and that she was well but feel as though she had 
her troubles ..." and in a postscript she writes," Dear sister

Dorcas. It gave me much pleasure to hear once more from you and 
to know that you are with our aged Parents . . . please accept

In his early life, Mr. Scott lived for a number of years in Belcher- 
town, Mass., but in 1853, when twenty-one years of age, he went west 
to Illinois and settled in Peoria County, where he purchased large tracts 
of land and engaged in farming. For ten years he continued in agri- 
culture and then, in the Spring of 1863, he removed to Wyoming, 
111., and became interested in the mercantile business with John 
Wrigley. His untiring industry and fine executive ability soon 
brought him a deserved success, and in 1870 he established the 
banking house of Scott & Wrigley which became one of the leading 
financial institutions of that part of Illinois. 

In a letter to his daughter, Harriett, dated 1 Feb. 1892, Mr. Scott 
wrote, "Just 29 years ago today, I came to Wyoming. Was in the 
mercantile business 7 years; 22 years ago today I went into the 
banking business; 39 years ago about this time of the year I left 
Massachusetts and started for Peoria, 111., and landed in Peoria 39 
years ago on the 18 day of next March". 



DESCENDANTS OF JOHN SCOTT 127 

Mr. Scott was married in 1858 to Mary Catherine, daughter of 
Enoch Cox, at her father's home in Essex Township. Mr. Cox had 
formerly resided in Londonderry, Ohio, but removed in 1840, when 
his daughter was only three years old, to Stark County, Illinois and 
finally settled on the farm where she was married. Both he and his 
wife, Sarah Drummond, came from Quaker stock whose sturdy 
characteristics and gentleness of heart descended to their daughter, 
Mary Catherine. During Mr. Scott's successive advancements in 
the business world and the cares and trials such progress necessarily 
entails, her life and personality were his refuge and comfort. They 
lived together for fifty-three years, surrounded by the love of children 
and grandchildren. At the time of their golden wedding anniversary 
the family wished to mark the day by appropriate ceremonies and 
rejoicings but the delicate health of Mrs. Scott prevented anything 
more than a family dinner. It is interesting to note that both their 
best man and bridesmaid were also living. Mr. Scott was the first 
to pass away, however, and as so often is the case, she survived him 
only a few months. For a number of years before her death she had 
been an invalid bearing her sufferings with uncomplaining courage. 
The worth to the community of her more than seventy years of life 
in it, was testified to by the loving sorrow of her neighbors, friends, 
and kindred when finally she fell asleep. 

Mr. Scott was educated at Millbury Academy, Mass., and always 
took an active interest in school matters. He was a member of the 
school board in Wyoming for sixteen years. In March, 1892, he 
joined the Wyoming Congregational Church, and was an active 
member at the time of his decease. At the age of twenty-four, he 
became a Mason, and rose to the thirty-second degree in that order. 
He was a charter-member of Wyoming Chapter, No. 133, Royal 
Arch Masons, a member of the Knights Templars, Scottish Rite 
Masons, and of the Mystic Shrine. He was also a member of the 
Independent Order of Odd Fellows, being treasurer of his lodge for 
fifteen years. 

Mrs. Scott was a member of the Eastern Star and was an original 
member of the Wyoming Congregational Church. 

Mr. Scott was proud of his clean, American ancestry and was a 
member of the Illinois Society of Mayflower Descendants and of the 
Sons of the American Revolution. He took especial pride in his 
grandfather, Capt. Ephraim Scott, of the War of 1812, and used to 
relate many anecdotes of him. 

During his long life, for he was nearly eighty years old when he 
died, he was a good neighbor, a faithful friend, public spirited and 
at all times willing to do his part, whether for private or public good. 
His loss to the banking interests of Illinois was deeply felt and many 
expressions of sympathy and regret reached the other members of 



128 SCOTT GENEALOGY 

the firm. His association with Mr. John Wrigley extended over a 
period of thirty-one years, of which twenty-four were spent in the 
bank. Mr. Scott was a warm, true-hearted man and a faithful friend. 
If he thought he was able to do any kindness for any person he was 
untiring in his effort to accomplish the end. His mind and character 
were so just in their formation that when a difference of opinion 
occurred he preferred to be the sufferer rather than risk being unfair. 
His death was mourned not only by his family, his large circle of 
friends, and his business associates, but by his town and State. 

The following abstract is from a letter written to Mr. Scott's 
daughter by Mr. John Walters, of the banking firm of Scott, Walters 
& Rakestraw, which was founded by George Washington Scott. 

"Of your father's early life I know very little except as I have heard him 
occasionally refer to it. I have often heard him speak of going to school at 
Millbury Academy in Massachusetts, and I have heard him say that when he 
was young he went to work in some manufacturing establishment in Massa- 
chusetts, 'but/ said he, 'that didn't suit me, I made up my mind I'd do busi- 
ness for myself and not be belled in and belled out of anybody else's establish- 
ment.' This was characteristic of his independent way of thinking and doing, 
and showed his early self-reliance. Later in life the same trait showed when 
he was offered the position of manager of the First National Bank in Peoria. 
He declined it saying he wouldn't want to work for anybody other than 
himself. 

"I have often heard him speak of his mother with great affection and esteem 
for her goodness and strength of character, and he spoke too of his father who 
however, I think, died when he was young, and of his uncle Alexander Scott. 

"Your father has often told me of his landing in St. Louis, when he moved 
West, on St. Patrick's day. Indeed there was hardly a St. Patrick's day came 
but what he would say, * So many years ago I landed in St. Louis.' I think 
he first bought land near what is Duncan on the line between Stark and 
Peoria Counties and engaged in farming for a few years. I have heard from 
others that he was as successful a wheat raiser as he later was a merchant and 
banker. He came to Wyoming in the early 60 's and bought the old corner 
store known as the Boston Store, and he lived in the house adjoining the store. 
He soon built up a good trade and about the same time John Wrigley came to 
Wyoming from England. Your father has told me how Mr. Wrigley, who 
was a blacksmith, would often come into the store at noon and eat his lunch 
there. One day he said, * George, don't you want a partner? ' * Why ? ' asked 
your father. * Because if you do, I'd like to go in with you.' 'Well,' said 
your father, 'if you will take the stock at what it invoiced on February 1st, 
you may come in.' 'That,' said your father, 'was the only agreement Mr. 
Wrigley and I ever made. There was never a scrap of paper between us.' 
And that was the simple beginning of the successful business partnership of 
Scott & Wrigley, merchants, which in 1870 became the banking firm of Scott 
& Wrigley. It was built on the trust of two good men in one another's char- 
acter, honor and business ability; a trust which continued unimpaired till 
death separated them by the removal of Mr. Wrigley in 1894. 

"Wyoming in those days was a small place, a few stores, a flour mill, a few 



DESCENDANTS OF JOHN SCOTT 129 

residences, a Methodist church and a frame two-room schoolhouse, and yet, 
as one looks back on the men and women who lived here then, he sees among 
them many of fine quality, young folks often from homes of refinement, and 
character, in the East. There was no railroad and life was slower, but not 
without interest. I have heard your father relate some of his business experi- 
ences of those days. When the war broke out prices went soaring rapidly 
and the firm of Scott & Wrigley was not slow to take advantage of the situa- 
tion, and carried large stocks of goods which steadily and rapidly increased in 
value. When Lincoln was assassinated there was a sudden fall in values due 
to the shaken confidence, but your father told me he knew it would come 
back, and saddled the old gray horse, road to Galva, took the train for Chicago 
and bought about $30,000 of dry-goods from Farwell & Co. He said that 
Charles Farwell came around and said, 'What are you going to do, Scott, set 
up a wholesale house?' But your father understood what he was doing and 
before the goods were shipped received an offer from Farwell's of $10,000 to 
leave them in the house. Of course, he refused. I have heard him speak of 
his first trip to Chicago to buy goods. Marshall Field was credit man for 
Farwell's and said, 'Mr. Scott, have you any references?' 'Yes,' said your 
father, but did not show any. 'Well, where are they?' asked Mr. Field. 
'Here, myself,' replied your father. Field said he guessed they were good 
enough and Scott & Wrigley were always good customers of Farwell's. 

"When your father came to Illinois, land could be had as low as $1.25 per 
acre and from that up to $10.00. Your father had faith and began dealing in 
land selling to new comers. About 1865 there was considerable immigration 
from Ohio, and land began to advance till in 1870 when I came here, they were 
selling about $40.00 (per acre). Your father told me about the first land 
purchase he made for the firm. It was an 80 acre tract near Castleton, which 
has recently sold for $200.00 per acre. He bought it for $1400.00 and said, 
'Mr. Wrigley, I bought some land for you,' and told him what it was. 'Do 
you think we can afford it?' Mr. Wrigley asked. 'Just as you say,' your 
father replied. 'All right,' said Mr. Wrigley. They sold it at a good profit 
and your father said Mr. Wrigley never questioned anything he did afterward 
in the matter of land purchases. 

"In 1870 and 1871 the railways came to Wyoming and Scott & Wrigley 
sold out their store and went into the banking business, opening two establish- 
ments, one in the north end of Wyoming and one in the south for the coming 
of the two railroads had split the town into two sections. A. B. Miner & Co. 
of Chicago also opened a bank and for a few years there was a keen fight for 
the business, but Scott & Wrigley won out and Miner & Co. sold out to the 
Farmer's National Bank, which some years later in turn went out of business, 
selling out to Scott & Wrigley. 

"I came to Wyoming in 1870, my father, mother and we five children com- 
ing from England in the 'Italy' and arriving in Wyoming in November. My 
father built the frame building adjoining to the present bank. I distinctly 
remember the first time I saw your father. I was walking up toward the 
north town, when a hack overtook me and your father jumped out and rushed 
up to me and commandeered me to take a message back to the store 'right 
away.' I was a quiet, shy, English boy and I wondered who that good-look- 
ing, handsome man was with the black eyes and the commanding manner who 



130 SCOTT GENEALOGY 

sent me doing his business. I remember I felt quite honored and important 
to execute the errand. But there was no mistaking the fact that he was a 
man who had a lot of rush and go to him, and was accustomed to making 
things go. This was my first impression and it was correct. 

"In 1872 I went to work in the Boston Store, and your father was always 
very nice to me, and took a good deal of interest in telling me things that 
would be of use to me as to little business habits, pointers, etc. As I look back 
on it, I appreciate very much, his kindness in doing so, and I did then, for, as 
I said, I was naturally rather a shy boy, and to have Mr. Scott take notice 
and talk to me in this friendly helpful way, betokened a naturally kind warm- 
hearted man. 

"When the Congregational Church was formed here with fourteen mem- 
bers, your mother was one of them, and your father was one of its staunch 
supporters. He did not become a member until 1890, but was a trustee earlier 
and no Sunday saw him absent from his place in church. He placed great 
value on the influence of the church in the community, and gave it both his 
material and moral support, steadfastly until his death. He was a good firm 
friend of the ministers and showed them many courtesies and kindnesses. 
In fact, the last call I made on him, the Sunday night before his death, he 
enquired very earnestly about the services and spoke most appreciatingly of 
the minister, Rev. William Moore, saying, 'Mr. Moore is a good man, and 
we must stand by him.* 

"The relationship between him and his partner, Mr. John Wrigley, was 
more than a business relationship. It was a close, warm, personal, friend- 
ship, in which the utmost mutual confidence abounded. In business matters, 
Mr. Scott was the one who took the helm and drove ahead; Mr. Wrigley took 
care of the details. Both were men of excellent judgement, and boundless 
energy, and both were men of unquestioned probity, hard workers, and their 
business was built up on a sound foundation. They made the name of Scott 
& Wrigley a synonym for progressiveness, soundness and integrity. When 
in August 1894, Mr. Wrigley was stricken with the apoplexy which two weeks 
later caused his death, your father and his family were visiting in Massachu- 
setts. He came at once, and nothing could exceed the unsparing energy and 
devotion with which he watched over him; and after Mr. Wrigley's death he 
was often moved to tears when he spoke of him. 

"Your father always took a warm interest in the public schools and was for 
many years a director, and his influence was very potent for their improve- 
ment. He gave to his own children and to his grand-daughter an education 
in the eastern colleges, and was always interested in seeing that young people 
of worth received all educational advantages within their reach. 

"In politics during pre-war times, he was a Democrat and a warm admirer 
of Stephen A. Douglas, but he became a Republican soon after the formation 
of that party and ever continued so. He took a keen interest in politics but 
never cared for any office. He also took a keen interest in foreign affairs and 
read widely on these matters. He was very fond of reading about foreign 
countries and took great pleasure in recalling the scenes and events of the 
European trip which he took with his family in 1884. He always expressed 
a great desire to visit Russia and Alaska, and he and Mr. Wrigley had planned 
to take the Alaskan trip in 1895, but Mr. Wrigley's death intervened. 



DESCENDANTS OF JOHN SCOTT 131 

"In 1895, after Mr. Wrigley's death, I entered the firm as a partner, repre- 
senting the Wrigley interest, and our relations continued in the most cordial 
confidence until his death. He always kept a close touch on the business, and 
his judgement as to any important matter always remained the final arbiter, 
even after he ceased to hold the active management. He was kind and gener- 
ous to those who worked under and with him. His judgement was sound as 
to equity in business and he always endeavored to mete this to others, as he 
expected to receive it and was quick to resent a wrong. I was impressed with 
his wide knowledge in business matters, his keen and usually correct judge- 
ment of men and affairs, and his sound New England vein of common-sense. 
He was a man, who had his lot been cast in a large growing city would have 
been one of our commercial princes. 

"It was really a business education for a man to be associated with your 
father, to hear from time to time his observations on men and things, on habits 
and practices, and I enjoyed to ride with him over the country and listen to 
his remarks on the lands as we passed, on the history and qualities of the vari- 
ous farms. It seemed to me that he knew them all, and it seemed as though 
he and Mr. Wrigley had at one time or other owned a large share of them. I 
once asked him, * Wouldn't it have paid you to have kept a lot of these farms? ' 
and he said, 'No, we couldn't, and it paid us better to keep things moving. 
A man shouldn't want to always get everything there is in a piece of property. 
He should be willing to let some one else make something.' 

"Your father has left his mark in many of the improvements of the town. 
It was he who set out the avenue of hard maple trees which make Galena 
Avenue so beautiful now, and he had much to do in acquiring the Central 
Park for the town. He took great interest in the building and improvement 
of the Congregational Church and parsonage; he had much to do with the 
inauguration of the City water-works and it was largely due to his foresight 
that the fine system of cement walks in Wyoming was laid out on a broad 
scale. One of the latest things in which he busied himself was the securing 
and erection of the fine iron cemetery fence. 

"He was a warm-hearted, generous-dispositioned man, who had a heart to 
help good causes, a true and steadfast friend, having a keen sense of right and 
fairness, and withal a hearty dislike of shams; a man of strong moral character 
who has left his mark for good in the general welfare of the community. 

"As a banker, he was sound, thorough, energetic, and his dealings with his 
customers were such that they became and remained his friends. In very 
many cases his advice and help has enabled deserving young men to make a 
good start in life and he has often been a helper to those in need."

DUNCAN 



SAMUEL DUNCAN was an early resident of Boston. He appears 
in a case in Court 1 Dec. 1640, but there being a mistake in the 
presentment he was discharged. Savage says he was of Newbury, 
in 1738. Samuel Duncan of "Roxbere" appears in an Essex Co. 
Case in 1672. He apparently left no Will nor was there any Admin- 
istration on his estate, so that it is impossible to obtain a full list of 
his children. He died in Roxbury, 19 Nov. 1693.* His wife's name 
was Mary. She was admitted to Roxbury Church, 11 May 1684. 

Suffolk Deeds, 9: 140. John Griggs of Roxbury sells to Samuell Dunkin, 
Sen*., of Muddy River, (Brookline) land in Boston, beyond Muddy River; 
Mary Griggs releases her dower, 14 Mar. 1672. 

9: 136. Samuel Dunkin of Muddy River, sells land in Muddy River, to 
Manasses Beck, 25 June 1674. 

10: 5. Samuel Dunkin, Sr. of Muddy River, Planter, sells land in Muddy 
River to John Hill of Boston, 29 July 1674. 

Children: 

i. Samuel 2 , b. about 1647; m. Deliverance. She was probably 
the dau. of John Curtis, of Roxbury who deeds part of his homelot 
to Samuel Duncan, Jr. 7 Nov. 1682. He had by her, in Roxbury, 
(1), Margaret, b. 17 Mar. 1670; (2), Samuel, b. Nov. 1672, d. 28 
Dec. 1672, ae. 6 weeks (G. S.); (3), Sarah, b. 23 Sept. 1674, d. 
26 July 1675; (4), Jabez, b. 20 Aug. 1678; (5), Deliverance, b. 
29 Sept. 1681; (6) Samuel, b. 14 Aug. 1689. He probably had 
also a son John and possibly removed to Worcester, 
ii. Hannah, b. 28 Apr. 1651, Boston; m. John Scott. 
iii. Jabez, b. 24 Feb. 1654, Boston, "died in the Company's service" 
in 1676. Administration on the estate of Jabesh Duncan, late 
of Roxbury, Slain in the Country's Service, is granted unto 
Samuel Duncan, his brother, in behalf of himself and other Rela- 
tions, in 1676, he giving Security to administer according to Law. 
(Suffolk Probate, 12: 11 a.) He served under Sergt. Robert 
Bardwell, in Capt. Turner's Command, 9 Apr. 1676. John 
Dunkin of Worcester certifies 1 Apr. 1735, that his uncle Jabez 
Dunkin was killed in the fight and applies as his proper heir. 
iv. Thomas, b. 15 Jan. 1655, Boston. 

HANNAH 2 DUNCAN (Samuel 1 ), born in Boston, Mass., 28 
Apr. 1651, probably died in Roxbury before 1722; married in Rox- 
bury, 29 May 1672, John Scott (p. 3). 

* Some authorities state that Samuel Duncan, Jr., died on 19 Nov. 1093.

PRIOR 



JAMES PRIOR resided in Boston, Mass., in 1681, where he had 
three children born by wife Susanna. He probably died between 
1687 and 1690, for on 13 Feb. 1690, Robert Watson married Susanna 
Prior in Boston and the only available Susanna is the wife of James 
Prior. What became of Robert and his wife Susanna is not shown 
by the Boston Records. It is interesting to note that both Prior 
and Watson are early Plymouth County names and that branches of 
the families went to Windsor, Conn. The name of Prior does not 
appear in the early probate or land records of Suffolk County. 

Children born in Boston, Mass. : 

i. James, b. 1 Jan. 1681. 
ii. Ann, b. 13 Jan. 1684. 
iii. Hannah, b. 1 Sept. 1687; m. Joseph Scott. 

HANNAH 2 PRIOR (James l ), born in Boston, Mass., 1 Sept. 
1687, died probably in Sturbridge, Mass.; married in Roxbury, 17 
May 1708, Joseph Scott (p. 4).

EDMANDS 



WILLIAM EDMANDS, born in 1610, a tailor, was made a free- 
man in Lynn, Mass., 6 May 1635. He deposed in 1652, "aged about 
42"; in 1678, "aged 68th year"; and died in Lynn, 4 Aug. 1693, aged 
eighty-two. His first wife was named Mary and after her death 
in Lynn, 2 Mar. 1657, he married (2), in Boston, 1 Sept. 1657, 
widow Ann Martin, who died before him. 

He was licensed to keep an Inn in Lynn in 1650 and remained the 
innkeeper for many years. He evidently lived in Chelsea, then 
called Rumney Marsh, near the Boston line. He was the residuary 
legatee of Thomas Batt's estate in 1689. 

There is an interesting case in the Essex County Court, pertaining 
to him and his wife Ann. One Henry Greene had a daughter Mary, 
who was afflicted with a "dangerous sore leg". He had placed her in 
charge of Dr. Comfort Starr of Charlestown, but she not getting any 
better, he left her with Mrs. Ann Edmands to see if the latter could 
effect a cure and guaranteed certain payment in case of recovery. 
Ann Edmunds evidently had a recognised skill in healing, as she is 
called in one place, a "doctor-woman", and the little girl became 
well. Greene, however, failed to pay as agreed and then Edmands 
sued him. 

Administration on the estate of William Edmands was granted to 
John Edmands, of Lynn, 11 Sept. 1693. (Essex Probate, 8584.) The 
deed of division of his property was signed by John Edmands; 
Joseph Edmands; Samuel Edmands; Mary Hutchins. 

Children: 



i. John *, b. about 1638; m. Sarah Hudson and Mart . 

ii. Mary, b. about 1640; m. Joseph Hutchins. 

Hi. Joseph, b. 1643, deposed in 1660 "aged about 17"; m. Susanna 



iv. Samuel; m. Elizabeth Merriam. 

JOHN 2 EDMANDS (William l ), born in Lynn, Mass., before 1640, 
died in Lynn between 6 Oct. 1701 and 6 Apr. 1702; married (1), in 
Lynn, 16 Dec. 1662, Sarah Hudson, who died 15 Feb. 1682. He 

married (2), about 1686, Mary , who probably was a widow 

George, and the sister of the wife of Joshua Blanchard, of Charles- 
town. John Edmands in his Will speaks of his "brother-in-law, 
Joshua Blanchard". An exhaustive search apparently proved that 
Mary was not a Blanchard, and as John Edmands* only sister married 



160 SCOTT GENEALOGY 

a Hutchins, the only way that Edmands and Blanchard could be 
brothers-in-law would be by their wives being sisters. Joshua 
Blanchard had two wives, his first was named Elizabeth. She died 
15 July 1688, aged twenty-one. He then married (2) Mehetabel 

, who died 10 Jan. 1741-2 aged seventy-six. Mary, wife of 

John Edmands, named a child, Mehetabel, and it is probable that 
Mehetabel, wife of Joshua Blanchard and Mary, wife of John 
Edmands, were sisters. The date of Mary's death is unknown but 
she survived John. 

John Edmands, of Lynn, husbandman, made his Will, 6 Oct. 
1701, proved 6 Apr. 1702. He calls himself "sick and weake" and 
gives his whole estate to wife Mary until son Josiah is of age; he 
gives to daughter Mary Edmands; daughter Elizabeth Edmands; 
daughter-in-law Elizabeth George; son William to be maintained by 
wife until son Joseph is of age and if William then remains "lame and 
decrepid", Joseph is to care for him; to daughter Mehetabel when 
of age; to daughter Rebecca when of age and if she remains weak 
and sickly, Joseph is to care for her; youngest son Ebenezer Edmands 
to have the housing that was " my father William Edmands* ". Ben- 
jamin and Samuel, two sons, were to be put at trades when fifteen 
years of age; to daughter Hannah Edmands and to two oldest 
daughters, Mary and Elizabeth Edmands. Wife Mary to be execu- 
trix and brother-in-law Joshua Blanchard to be overseer. (Essex 
Probate, 307: 308.)

June 1768; married (Int.) in Lynn, 25 Oct. 1707, Mary Pratt, of 
Charlestown, perhaps daughter of Joseph and Dorcas (Folger) 



ANCESTRAL LINES OF HARRIETT GRACE SCOTT 161 

Pratt, who died before 1745, probably in Dudley. He married (2), 
in Woodstock, Conn., 6 Aug. 1746, Mrs. Bathsheba (Sanford) 
Holmes, daughter of Thomas and Christian Sanford, of Boston, and 
widow of David Holmes. 

Joseph Edmands remained in Lynn, until about 1724, when he 
removed to a tract of land between Woodstock, Conn., and Oxford, 
Mass., called Kickamowadchaug, which later became the town of 
Dudley, Mass. 

He made his Will, 20 June 1751, proved 5 July 1768. He gave 
to son-in-law Joseph Scott, and son-in-law David Cutting, being in 
full of their wives' portions of his estate; to daughter-in-law, Hannah 
Edmands, the late wife of son William Edmands, deceased, one shill- 
ing, he having had his share; to son-in-law Philip Newell, in full of 
his late wife Hannah's share; to son Benjamin Edmands; to grand- 
daughter, Mary Newell, in care of her father, Philip Newell, and if she 
dies, to be divided amongst her surviving sisters. " Whereas there is a 
certain Joynture made between me and my well beloved wife Bath- 
sheba dated Aug. 5, 1746" wherein it was agreed that if she survived 
me and should choose to leave my house she should have £100 inas- 
much as she has been a loving wife she is to have £6-13-4 more. Son 
Joseph Edmands to be Executor and to have the residue. (Worcester

TACKLES 



ALEXANDER TACKLES came with one of the Scotch-Irish 
emigrations from the north of Ireland. These people were really 
Scotch covenanters, who had fled into Ireland, as the Pilgrims went 
to Holland, in order to gain religious freedom. Finding, however, 
that the end sought was not obtained, they again emigrated and this 
time to America. Some of them settled in New Hampshire, some in 
Pennsylvania, and a large colony was established in Worcester Co., 
Mass. Alexander Tackles belonged to this last group. He was in 
Palmer in 1732, and was granted one hundred acres of land there in 
1733. The name of his wife is not known, nor are there any records 
of their deaths. He had at least two sons, who removed to Onslow, 
Nova Scotia. 

Children: 

i. William, b. before 1720; m. Jean . 

ii. Hugh, b. in Ireland, in 1725, was a blacksmith and served in the 
French War. He removed to Onslow being an original grantee 
of the town. He became a settler there in 1760. His wife was 
named Elizabeth and they had the following children: 

1. Isabel, b. 8 May 1768. 

2. Mart Ann, b. 5 Oct. 1769. 

3. William, b. 2 Apr. 1771. 

4. Alexander, b. 15 Sept. 1773. 

5. Robert, b. 2 Sept. 1775. 

WILLIAM 2 TACKLES (Alexander *), born probably in Ireland 
before 1720, place of death unknown; married before 1741, Jean 



He was an original grantee of Onslow, N. S., and went there in 1760. 
He appears in various lists as receiving land and so do his sons 
James and Hugh Actor (or Easter). The following deed, recorded 
at Truro, N. S., and dated 6 July 1771 inclines one to think that 
William returned to Massachusetts, lived in Ware and perhaps died 
there. "William Tackles of Ware in the County of Hampshire, 
Province of Massachusetts Bay in New England yeoman sells to 
William Sterlin of Windsor, N. S., one and one-half rights of land at 
Onslow, N. S., 750 acres, etc."

ANCESTRAL LINES OF HARRIETT GRACE SCOTT 165 



CONEY 



JOHN CONEY, an early settler of Boston, came from Boston, co. 
Lincoln, England. The family to which he belonged has been traced 
back by Mr. Willard Morse of New York, to one Robert Coney of 
Byam, France, who came to England with the Princess Isabella, 
Queen of Edward II of England (1307-1327). While there seems no 
reason to doubt that this Robert was the progenitor of the family, 
the pedigree as given by Mr. Morse has several obvious errors in it 
and seems scarcely worth printing here until corrected. Not having 
access to all the material on which this pedigree is based, it is impos- 
sible to correct it here and in the following account of the English 
ancestry of John Coney, certain possibilities founded on such authen- 
tic information as is given in the Morse pedigree is merely called to 
attention. 

In the early part of the sixteenth century there were living in 
Frampton, co. Lincoln, England, John and William Coney. The 
Morse pedigree makes them father and son, which can not be correct. 
John, eldest son of the above John Coney of Frampton, was born in 
1514, and his brother William was the third son and born therefore 
about 1518. William Coney of Frampton, died in 1557 and at the 
time was not only a grandfather, but had several grandchildren. If 
he were identical with William, son of John Coney of Frampton, he 
would be about thirty-nine years old. Assuming that all four of his 
surviving children and the probable ones that did not survive were 
born before he was twenty-four, the last would have to be married 
before fourteen and all would marry equally early. In order to 
have three children before 1557, Roger, son of William, would have 
to be born when his father was about sixteen and be a father himself 
at about the same age. While this is not impossible, it is highly 
improbable especially as there is no proof that Roger was the first 
born child of William Coney. It seems quite evident that William 
Coney must have been considerably older than thirty-nine in 1557. 

The Inquest P. M. on John Coney of Frampton in 1538-9, states that 
he was son of Robert Coney of Kirton and that the said John Coney's 
eldest son was twenty-three years old. The Morse pedigree makes 
this Robert Coney of Kirton, father of John, identical with one Robert 
Coney of Kirton who died in 1522 and whose eldest son was Thomas 
Coney aged twenty years and hence born in 1502. If John Coney 



166 SCOTT GENEALOGY 

of Frampton, was son of this Robert Coney he could not have been 
born before 1504 since he must be younger than the heir, Thomas, 
born in 1502, and as John's eldest son was born in 1515, it would 
make him a father at the tender age of eleven years. The Morse 
pedigree defends this by pointing out the fact that marriages fre- 
quently occurred at an early age in England about this period, but 
granting this, the age at which marriage occurred has nothing to do 
with it, the age of physical maturity being much the same then as now. 

The probability is that John and William Coney of Frampton 
were brothers and both sons of a Robert Coney of Kirton, and it 
also seems logical to suppose that the Robert of Kirton who died in 
1522 was their older brother. If their father were son of Geoffrey 
and Elizabeth (Copledike) Coney, as the pedigree suggests and which 
there seems no reason to doubt, it would make John Coney of Framp- 
ton, a first cousin to that Richard Coney of Bassingthorpe whom 
John made guardian of his second son. 

The pedigree makes the line of Geoffrey Coney to be as follows: 

Robert Coney of Byam, France, married a daughter of Sir John 
Houltbeck. 

Sir John 2 Coney (Robert J ), married Jane Houlbridge, daughter 
of Sir John Houlbridge, and had sons Anthony and Robert. 

Anthony 3 Coney (Sir John 2 , Robert 1 )* married a daughter of 
John Friskeny, and had sons Richard, William, Robert and Anthony. 

Robert 4 Coney (Anthony 3 , Sir John 2 , Robert x ), married a daugh- 
ter of John Digby of Kirkby and had son Geoffrey. 

Geoffrey 5 Coney (Robert 4 , Anthony 3 , Sir John 2 , Robert 1 ), 
married Elizabeth Copledike, daughter of William, and had Anthony 
Coney and William Coney, and possibly was the father of Robert 
Coney of Kirton, and the grandfather of John and William of Framp- 
ton. His son, William, was the father of Richard Coney of Bassing- 
thorpe. 

The line seems clear back to William Coney of Frampton, although 
the compilers of the Morse pedigree call attention to the fact that it 
is not absolutely proven that William Coney of Boston, England, was 
identical with William Coney, son of Roger Coney of Frampton. 
All the evidence so far found points that way however and there is no 
scrap of evidence to militate against it. 

What is known of the Frampton Coneys follows with the Ameri- 
can pedigree, in which William Coney of Frampton is taken as the 
first proven ancestor and the individual from whom the generations 
are numbered. 

John Coney of Frampton, England, born probably about 1490, 
died in Frampton, in the spring of 1539; married before 1515, Alison 
or Alice Pooles, daughter of John and Ann (Coney) Pooles, born 
1498, died between 2 Apr. and 22 Oct. 1540.

William and Thomas, with oversight of John Pooles and Robert 
Whelpdale. If sons do their duties by their mother and be counselled

Inquest P. M., on John Cony of Frampton, taken at Boston, 
Lincoln, 12 Aug. 1539. John Cony and Alice his wife, late son of 
Robert Cony of Kirketon- Wellington, and Alice, daughter of John 
Pooles, late of Kirketon. 

The said John Cony died and the said Alice survived him and is 
still living. The said John Cony died on the 22nd February, 30 
Henry VIII 1538-9 and John Cony is his son and heir, aged 23 years 
at the time of his death. 

Alice Coney, widow, of Frampton made her Will 2 Apr. 1540, 
proved 22 Oct. 1540 in Lincoln Consistory Court. She gave to

iv. Thomas, b. probably about 1522. 

v. Perhaps a daughter m. to Pery and deceased before 1588-9. 

WILLIAM 1 CONEY (whose possible line is Robert, Geoffrey, 
Robert, Anthony, Sir John, Robert) of Frampton, was probably 
the brother of John Coney of Frampton and certainly the brother of 
Thomas Coney, Sr., of Kirton, who died in Aug. 1545. This Thomas 
Coney Sr., of Kirton, made a Will 12 Aug. proved 28 Aug. 1545, and 
directs that he be buried in the Church of SS. Peter and Paul. He 
gives to brother William Cony; to godson Mr. Kenelm Irby; to 
daughter Elizabeth, wife of William Pery; to Roger, son of William

utrix; brother William Coney and Kinsman Thomas Coney, 
supervisors. 

This will and that of John Coney of Frampton with the I. P. M. 
of the latter show almost conclusively that Robert Coney of Kir- 
ton had at least three sons, Thomas, John, and William. 

William Coney was born probably about 1500 and died in March, 
1556-7, in Frampton, Lincoln, England. He was a yeoman, and it 
is evident that his wife deceased before he made his Will. In this 
Will which is dated 1 Mar. 1556-7 and proved 31 Mar. 1557, he gave 
to his three daughters, land in Kyrton; to John Wisdaylle of Framp- 
ton for the use of Thomas Coney, son of Roger Coney; to said 
Thomas Coney, land; to John Wisdayll, son of the said John Wisdaylle;

JOHN 4 CONEY (William 3 , Roger \ William l ), baptised in Framp- 
ton, England, 15 Apr. 1599. John Coney "Gent." was buried in 
Boston, England, 6 Apr. 1630. He married in Boston, 16 Dec. 
1624, Elizabeth Hawkredd, daughter of Anthony and Isabel (Tuck- 
ney) Hawkredd, born in Boston, baptised there 8 Dec. 1605, died in 
New England after 1667 (p. 178). She married (2), in Boston, 
England, 1 Jan. 1632-3, Oliver Mellows and came to Boston, Mass., 
before Dec. 1634, evidently bringing with her, her son John Coney 
aged about five, and her daughter Mary aged about three years. By 
her second husband, she had baptised in First Church, Boston, Mass., 
(1) Samuel Mellows, 7 Dec. 1634; (2) Martha Mellows, 6 Mar. 1636; 
m. Joseph Waters of Milford; (3) Mary Mellows, 26 Aug. 1638; m. 
Emmanuel Springfield and returned to England. Oliver Mellows 
died in Braintree in 1638 and administration on his estate was granted 
to his widow in Dec. 1638. She married before 1641 (3), Thomas 
Makepeace of Dorchester. The records of the First Church of Bos- 
ton give; "The 25th day of y e 5th Mon: 1641. Mrs. Elizabeth 
Makepeace lately called Mrs. Elizabeth Mellowes, but now y e wife 
of Mr. Makepeace of Dorchester, was granted Ire of Recommenda- 
tion thether". Thomas Makepiece died in 1667 and in his Will he 
gives: "to my wife's three daughters, vizt. unto Mary, the wife of 
James Dennis of Boston, and to Martha the wife of Joseph Waters 
of Milford, and to Mary the wife of Emanuell Springfield in old 
England", and to his "well beloved wife Elizabeth". 

* This supposition is supported by the fact that when John 4 Coney mentions his 
brethren in his Will, he names Thomas first and then William and if William had been 
the eldest son he would, if he followed custom, have named him first.

JOHN 5 CONEY (John*, William 3 , Roger \ William 1 ), baptised 
in Boston, England, 17 June 1628, died in Boston, Mass., 24 Dec. 
1690; married in Boston, Mass., 20 June 1654, Elizabeth Nash, 
daughter of Robert and Sarah Nash, born in 1635, died in Boston, 
16 Dec. 1687, aged 52, buried in the Granary Burying Ground (p. 181). 

John Coney first appears in the public records of Boston, Mass., 
when John Milom, cooper, assigned "John Coney es Indenture for 
the term of six months", 12 Dec. 1649. This would make his appren- 
ticeship expire on 12 June 1649 which was probably his twenty-first 
birthday, and if so he was five days old when he was baptised. On 
Feb. 25, 1655 he was appointed one of two packers of fish and meat 
for the town and also a "gager of cask" and was again chosen for 
that office in 1657. In 1669, he was made constable. In 1672 and 
1687 he was "Clerke of ye market". In 1676, 1689-1690, he was 
made inspector of chimneys for the prevention of fires and in the last 
year is called "Mr. John Cony Sen r ". In 1678 he was one of a com- 
mittee of six, two from each of the then existing churches, to receive 
subscriptions from the Second Church for the "Colledge". 

He was evidently a man of considerable property, but no Will or 
administration of his estate has been found. He owned an estate on 
Copps Hill which was sold after his death by his son John and daugh- 
ters Rebecca and Mary who signed the deed with "Thomas Walter 
Administrator of the said John Coney dec ed ". Presumably the 
other children who would also have been of age in 1691 had died 
before their father.

NATHANIEL 6 CONEY (John\ John\ William 3 , Roger 2 , 
William *)> born probably in Boston, Mass., about 1675, died in 
Boston, 19 Nov. 1742; married (1), in Hingham, Mass., 11 Oct. 
1699, Elizabeth Greenland of Boston, who died in Boston, after 
20 Mar. 1710-11. He married (2), in Boston, 6 Sept. 1711, Abigail 
(Skinner) Ager, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth (Maverick) 
(Grafton) Skinner and widow of Ebenezer Ager, born about 1685, 
and died between 1728 and 1736, probably in Stoughton, Mass. 
(p. 183). He was published in Rehoboth, Mass., 13 May 1736 to 
Mary Barney but presumably did not marry her. He married (3), 
in Boston, 27 Dec. 1736, Mary Royal, who died 30 Jan. 1749-50, 
aged eighty years, according to her gravestone in Copps Hill Bury- 
ing-ground. 

Nathaniel Coney's parentage is proved by two deeds recorded in 
the Middlesex County Registry. In the first (vol. 61, p. 52) dated 
4 Mar. 1716, "John Coney of Boston . . . goldsmith eldest son 
and joint heir of John Coney of Boston aforesaid deceased" conveys 
to his brother Nathaniel Coney all the land "laid out to Mr. John 
Coney . . . five hundred acres on the north-east side of Merri- 
mack River in the township of Dunstable", and in the deed it is 
stated that "whereas the said John Coney deceased left several 
children heires to the said lot as well as his other estate: now know ye 
hat I the said John Coney eldest son as aforesaid, out of that love 
and affection which I have and do bear unto my brother Nathaniel 
Coney of Boston aforesaid, Taylor, Have granted," etc. The other 
deed, dated 23 Jan. 1716-7, conveys the same property from 
" Nathaniel Coney of Boston, in the county of Suffolk in New England, 
Taylor", and Abigail, his wife, to Thomas Hutchinson of Boston, and 
he states that he "is the true sole and legal owner of the said land 
. . . partly in right of my father John Coney late of said Boston, 
Cooper, who died seized thereof in fee, and the remainder was given 
and granted to me by my brothers John and Benjamin Coney and 
my sister Elizabeth Booth, who were children and heirs of my said 
father". 

Nathaniel Coney removed about 1723 to Rehoboth, Mass. He 
may have lived for a short time in Sudbury as he had a child born 
there in 1722. Before 1728, he was living in Stoughton but appar- 
ently after his third marriage he returned to Boston. He died 
suddenly and on the 20 Nov. 1742, "In the sixteenth year of the 
reign of . . . George ye second before James Devonport one 
of the coroners of our said Lord the King . . . upon the view of 
the body of Nathaniel Coney then and their being dead", the jurors 
ruled, "that the sayd Nathaniel Coney on the nineteenth Instant,

HAWKREDD 



WILLIAM HAWKREDD, born probably about 1520, was buried 
in Boston, England, 16 Apr. 1575. He married before 1553 and 
probably about 1543, Mary Feld, daughter of Nicholas Feld of 
Boston, born about 1521, died after 1553. When William died he 
had a wife Elizabeth, who apparently was the mother of the children 
born from 1567 to 1574. In his Will, William gives to his daughter 
Joanne some property of her grandfather Feld, but does not mention 
Feld in connection with his next child Anthony, who was only a 
year old when Joanna married. The burial of Cassander Hawkredd 
is recorded at Boston, on the 10 May 1565, and it seems probable 
that Mary Feld was the mother of Joanna only, that she died after 
1553, being mentioned in her father Nicholas Feld's Will of that date, 
and that William married (2), Cassandra, and that after her death, 
he married (3), Elizabeth, to whom he gives the residue of his prop- 
erty after arranging for Joanna and Anthony, presumably because 
she was the mother of his other living children. There seems to be 
no other family of the name in Boston, at this period. 

William Hawkredd, Alderman of Boston, co. Lincoln, made his Will 
12 Apr. 1575, proved at Lincoln, 5 June 1575. He bequeaths to 
daughter Joanne, Androwe Leakes wife, certain articles that were 
her grandfather, Mr. Feld's; to son Anthonie Hawkredd, money in 
the hand of Androwe Leake until he comes to age of 21 ; to Elizabeth 
his wife, and she to be executrix. Witnesses: Henry Holland, Vicar 
of Boston, John Gandrie, William Dalland.

NASH 



ROBERT NASH, a butcher, was in Charlestown, Mass., before 
1640. He was possibly a son of Gregory Nash, an original church 
member there who died 12 month 1630. In 1641 he appears in a 
case in Court of John Edwards of Charlestown (Lechford). He 
removed to Boston before 1642, as his wife Sarah was admitted to 
the church there, 25 Feb. 1641-2. In 1641 he sued Walter Knight 
in the Essex court, and in 1644 he was sued by Edward Colcord of 
Hampton, Thomas Dexter of Lynn and Henry Ingram. This last 
case he appealed to the next quarter court of assistants. He was a 
debtor to the estate of Isaac Gross in 1649, and the estate of Henry 
Sandys owed him money on the account of Jeremiah Goold in 1651. 

In the case of William Payne vs. Robert Nash in Sept. 1652 are 
the following interesting depositions: "William Follett deposed that 
about two years ago, Thomas Footman came to him with a note 
under the hand of Mr. William Payne and demanded 3000 pipe 
staves to be delivered aboard the boat of Robert Nash; and that 
about two days after Robt. Nash's boat came to the place where 
deponents staves were and the boatmen were taking them aboard". 

"28: 7: 1652. Thomas Footman deposed that he met Robert 
Nash at the house of Robt Memham of Pusscataqua about two years 
ago, when said Robert Nash entreated him to demand three thousand 
pipe staves, upon a note from M r William Payne from William Follet 
and he did so. They were 'tould down' by deponent and William 
Follet and put aboard the boat of Robert Nash." 

"Josua Nash, aged about nineteen years, deposed that being at 
Pascattaquack river with his father, having two vessels there, one of 
them had received damage at the Isle of Shoals and a good part of 
the goods was lost. Mending the vessel and meeting with Mr. 
William Paine at Mrs. Mendam's house at Pascattaquash his father 
asked Paine if he could spare him two or three thousand pipe staves, 
and he said he could; that said deponent went by his father's order 
in said bark to John Goodward and received of him two thousand 
pipe staves, not on Mr. Paine's account but on his father's. Then 
because he wished to get them near at hand, he went to James 
Buncker but could get none and Buncker sent them up Oyster River, 
where none could be obtained. He proceeded further and came to 
Anchor against Thomas Footmans house and Thomas came aboard. 



ANCESTRAL LINES OF HARRIETT GRACE SCOTT 181 

Deponent told him he had a note from his father to receive of him 
enough staves to make up their lading. He received 3000 and gave 
a receipt and his father paid for them. His father being at Goodman 
Thomas' house the latter demanded pay for them." (Essex Quarterly 
Court Files, 1:363.) 

In 1660, Robert Nash agreed to build a lean-to (Lynetoo) to a 
house that he had hired of Matthew Barnes, milner, 19 Oct. 1659. 

20 July 1659, Robert Nash of Boston, Butcher, with consent of 
Sarah his wife, sells William Bartholomew of Ipswich, land and build- 
ings near the mill-creek in Boston. (Suffolk Deeds, 3: 397: 438.) 

26 Apr. 1647, Robert Nash of Boston gave a bond to pay Hugh 
Gunnison to Thomas Joy. 

Robert Nash of Boston, butcher, makes John Thompson, master 
of the Elizabeth, his attorney to obtain a debt of Richard Comins, 
27 June 1648, and on 7 Nov. 1648 he makes Thomas Widhouse of 
Pascatqs his attorney; 7 Dec. 1648 he gave a release to Mr. ffrancis 
Knight of Pemaquid; 17 Mar. 1648-9, John Shawe of Boston, 
butcher, gave a release of all dues to Robt. Nash; 13 Dec. 1649, 
Robert Nash, by power of attorney from Ralph Clark, dated 1 Oct. 
1649, makes Jeremie Clark of Road Island his attorney; 24 Dec. 
1649, Capt. Charles Dobson of Boston for "divers good causes", 
assigns his one-fourth share of the Barke Charles of Boston to Robert 
Nash his "well beloved friend" and his heirs; 15 Apr. 1650, Robert 
was a witness to the assignment of John Coney's indenture from 
John Milom to Capt. Elias Pilgrim; 11 July 1650, he sells to John 
Thompson of London, house and land in Charlestown which he pur- 
chased of Nicholas Davison, and 24 Dec. 1650, Edward Abbot bound 
himself as a servant to Robert Nash for two years from the 15 Jan. 
1650-1. (Aspinwall.) 

He apparently left no Will, and there was no administration on his 
estate. He died at Boston 13 Sept. 1661. His widow, Sarah, 
died "Nov. y e 14, 1688, aged about 89" and is buried in the Granary

t The Will of Radford Mavericke contains the following clause: "To my cousen 
Nathaniell Mauericke, my eldest brother's son"; the Register of Awliscombe, Devon, 
gives as baptised, "1583 Nathaniel Mavericke son of Peter Mavericke 24 June", and 
in the suit of Peter Mavericke against William Champneys it is stated that in the lease 
in question "the three lives named by the said Peter were those of his son Nathaniel 
Mavericke and of Samuel and Elias, two of the sons of John Mavericke, son of the said 
Peter". These three statements are conclusive proof that Peter was eldest son to 
Robert * Mavericke and place Samuel, Elias, Moses, etc., as sons of John * Mavericke 
and grandsons of the said Peter * Mavericke.

JOHN 3 MAVERICKE (Peter \ Robert 1 ), born in Awliscombe, 
Devon, England, baptised there 28 Dec. 1578, died at Dorchester, 
Mass., 3 Feb. 1635-6, being, according to Winthrop, "near sixty 
years of age". He married at Ilsington, Devon, 28 Oct. 1600, Mart 
Gye, who came with him to New England and was living as late as 
9 Oct. 1666. In 1665, Col. Cartwright states that Mr. Samuel Maver- 
ick, his fellow commissioner, "hath his mother, wife, children & 
brothers living there", in Massachusetts. Samuel Maverick, writ- 
ing from Rhode Island, 9 Oct. 1666, to Secretary Sir William Morrice 
says that his mother "presents her humble service". 

John Maverick was matriculated at Exeter College, Oxford, 24 
Oct. 1595, aged 18, being described as a clergyman's son. He received 
the degree of B.A., 8 July 1599 and that of M.A., 7 July 1603, having 
been already ordained at Exeter as deacon and priest 29 July 1597. 
He may have been curate to his uncle, Radford Mavericke, in Ilsing- 
ton, since he was married there. On 30 Aug. 1615, he was inducted 
at Silverton, co. Devon, by William Cotton, Bishop of Exeter, to the 
rectory of Beaworthy, co. Devon, on the presentation of Arthur 
Arscott, Esq., patron of the living. He remained there until he 
resigned shortly before his emigration, his successor being inducted 
24 Mar. 1629-30. In this month John Mavericke was chosen one of 
the teachers of the Puritan Church organized at Plymouth, England. 
He sailed the 20 Mar. 1629-30 from Plymouth on the "Mary and 
John", one of the ships of the fleet under John Winthrop, arrived in 
New England, 30 May 1630, and settled at Dorchester, Mass. He 
was made Freeman 18 May 1631, and remained the minister at Dor- 
chester until his death.

MOSES * MAVERICK (John \ Peter 2 , Robert *), born in England 
about 1611 (deposed in Sept. 1662, aged 50 years; in Nov. 1665, 
aged abt. 54 years; in Mar. 1667, aged abt. 55 years, etc.), died at 
Marblehead, Mass., 28 Jan. 1685-6; married before 6 May 1635, 
Remember Allerton, daughter of Isaac and Mary (Norris) Aller- 
ton, born in Leyden, Holland, before 1620, died after 1652 (p. 191). 

He married (2), 22 Oct. 1656, Eunice ( ) Roberts, widow of 

Thomas Roberts, born about 1628, (deposed in 1671, aged abt. 43), 
living 5 Dec. 1698. 

He probably came to America with his father, Rev. John Maverick, 
and settled at Dorchester, Mass., where he was a proprietor in 1633. 
He removed to Salem, Mass., and was admitted a Freeman there, 3 
Sept. 1634. He was at Marblehead by 1635; a proprietor there in 
1637 and constable in 1643. He was licensed as an Innkeeper for 
many years and apparently was clerk of the Court as he signed many 
papers "for the court", this may have been because he was Clerk of 
the Writts (i. e., town clerk), he having been appointed to that office 
in 1664. He was made a "Commissioner to end small causes" in 
1656, and was appointed to marry and take testimony in civil cases 
in 1658. He also served on the trial jury and the grand jury, while 
in 1674 he was made a selectman. In 1636 he paid to the General 
Court, the rent for Noddle's Island (now East Boston), having charge 
of his brother Samuel's affairs while the latter was in Virginia. 

He made his Will, Jan. 1685-6, but did not sign it, and on its pres- 
entation at Court by the widow, Eunice, 30 Mar. 1686, some of 
his children objected to its provisions and it was referred to the next 
Court. Apparently, the Will was not allowed, for, 15 July 1686, 
Eunice, the widow, was appointed in Boston, administratrix of the 
estate of "Moses Maverick late of Marblehead deceased Intestate". 
In 1691 and 1693, Edward Woodman, son-in-law of Moses Mavericke, 
petitioned that the widow should make an accounting of her admin- 
istration but final settlement of the estate was not made until 29 
Nov. 1698. Among the documents on file in Salem in connection 
with his estate is the appointment, 22 Sept. 1693, of Edward Wood- 
man, as guardian of his children, Remember and John, to receive 
their share of their grandfather Maverick's estate. The back of the 
paper is endorsed: "Daughters of Moses & Rember Maverick. 
Abigail Wards Children Eliza Skinner Remember Woodm n dec d her 
Child. Mary Ferguson Sarah Norman". 

The unsigned Will of Moses Maverick was as follows:

Administration on his estate granted to widow Eunice Maverick, 
who gave bonds with Anthony Checkley and John Waite of Boston, 
15 July 1686. 

"The Humble Petition of Edward Woodman Sen r of Boston who 
Married Remember Maverick Daughter of Moses Maverick Late of 
Marblehead in Behalf of his Seven Children of his said Remember 
his Wife" was presented 29 Sept. 1691. 

On the 22 Sept. 1693, "Remember Woodman, aged about Twenty

ALLERTON 



ISAAC ALLERTON, a young tailor from London, was married 
in the Stadhuis, Leyden, Holland, 4 Nov. 1611, to Mary Norris, a 
maid from Newbury, co. Berks, England. At the same time and 
place his sister, Sarah (Allerton) Vincent, widow of John Vincent of 
London, was married to Degory Priest, a hatter, also from London. 

Allerton was made a Freeman in Leyden, 7 Feb. 1614. In 
1620 he came on the "Mayflower" to Plymouth, New England. 
William Bradford in his list of the "Mayflower" passengers, mentions, 
"m r Isaac Allerton and Mary, his wife; with 3. children Bartholo- 
mew Remember & Mary, and a servant boy, John Hooke". John 
Allerton, a sailor who designed settling in the new Colony, died before 
the vessel sailed on her return. Whether or not he was any relative 
to Isaac is unknown. 

Mrs. Mary (Norris) Allerton died on 25 Feb. 1621, of the illness 
which carried off over half of the "Mayflower's" company during 
the dreadful first winter. About 1626, Allerton re-married to Fear 
Brewster, the daughter of Elder William Brewster. She died 12 
Dec. 1634. He married (3), before 1644, a wife Johanna. He settled 
in New Haven where he began trading with the Dutch, and on 20 
Jan. 1642, sold his ship "Hope" to Govert Loockermans of New 
Amsterdam. The following year with Loockermans he had a grant 
of land in New Amsterdam on the Great Highway. He evidently 
resided there for some time but after 1647 and before 1651 he returned 
to New Haven. In 1654 he made a voyage to Virginia. 

His inventory was presented in the New Haven Court, 5 Apr. 
1659, his son Isaac being away at the time. After his return he pro- 
duced his father's Will on 5 July 1659, and was appointed to settle 
the estate, but for some reason and in spite of the fact that the Court 
tried to have him keep it, he being "the deceaseds eldest or onely 
son" relinquished the trust. He purchased his father's house from 
the creditors and by deed of 4 Oct. 1660, conveyed a life interest in it 
to his step-mother, with remainder to his daughter Elizabeth. Mrs. 
Johanna Allerton died in 1682. 

Children, by Mary Norris, born in Leyden, Holland: 

i. Bartholomew, b. abt. 1612, returned to England,

ELLIS 



Among the early settlers of Dedham, Mass., were a number of 
persons by the name of Ellis. They were probably all related, but 
were unlikely to have been brothers and sisters. From the fragment- 
ary data existing it seems probable that a widow Ellis, with two sons, 
Richard and Joseph, married Lambert Genery (or Chenery) and came 
to this country. It is quite possible that John, Thomas and Ann 
Ellis, also early settlers of Dedham, may have been her children or 
her step-children, but there is no proof of it. 

*Lambert Genery signed the Dedham Covenant in 1636, as did also 
John Ellice, Richard Ellice and Joseph Ellice. In the list of admis- 
sions to the church there are the following: 

The wife of Goodman Genery, 4 Dec. 1640. 

Lambert Genery, 9 June 1644. 

John Ellis, 1640. 

Susan, wife of John Ellis, 12 Apr. 1644. 

Richard Ellis, 5 Jan. 1643. 

"Ruth y e wife of brother Joseph Ellis" was received into Full 

Communion, 12 Feb. 1664, "she being y e daughter of o r brother 

John Morse". 

John Ellis married in Dedham, Mass., 10 Nov. 1641, Susan Lumber. 
She died 5 Apr. 1653, in Medfield, and he married (2), Joan, widow of 
John Clapp (p. 230) of Dorchester. He lived in Medfield, until his 
death, 2 Apr. 1697. Children (Ellis), John; Hannah; Samuel; Joseph, 

Ann Ellis, married in Dedham, Mass., 19 Sept. 1638, Edward Cul- 
ver; they had children (Culver), John; Joshua; Samuel; and Joseph; 
removed to Roxbury and thence to New London. 

Thomas Ellis, married, 21 May 1659, Mary Wight of Dedham; 
they had children (Ellis), Mary; Abiel; Samuel; Thomas; Patience; 
Ruth; Thomas; Joanna; Juda. 

Widow Ellis married (1) before 1620 Ellis, and (2), probably 

before 1633, Lambert Genery. She died before 14 May 1658. 

* Lambert Genery is said to have been first at Watertown and if so was in this country 
before 1636, for in that year we find him a signer of the Dedham Covenant. He mar- 
ried first, a widow Ellis, by whom he had two sons, John and Isaac Genery. She died 
before 14 May 1658, for on that date he married, second, Thamzin Hewes by whom he 
had, Mary Genery, born in Dedham, 24 Dec. 1659. He was born 1593, and died in 
Dedham 30 Jan. 1 673-4 . He deposed aged eighty years, 1 7 June 1 673. He was admit- 
ted a Freeman in Dedham in May 1645 and served the town as constable in 1658-9. 

He made his Will 17 Feb. 1673, proved 4 Feb. 1674, mentions son John Genery; 
Isaac Genery; daughter Mary; son-in-law Richard Ellis, and daughter-in-law Ruth 
Ellis, widow; and gives to church in Dedham.

deposed on 28 Jan. 1661, aged 40 years, on 28 May 1685, aged 64 
years, died in Dedham, Mass., 21 Oct. 1694; married in Dedham, 
19 Sept. 1650, Elizabeth French, born 1629, died in Dedham, 21 
June 1697 (p. 197). 

Richard Ellis presumably came to this country with his mother 
and step-father, Lambert Genery, and was a resident of Dedham by 
1636. He was a wheelwright by trade but was a man of good educa- 
tion, as was also his younger brother Joseph, who served Dedham as 
its schoolmaster for a number of years. He was made sergeant of the 
military company of Dedham in 1659, holding this office until after 
1683 when he became lieutenant. In 1659 he was a woodreeve, in 
1660 served on a committee with Lieut. Fisher to treat with the 
Indians and later was on many other important committees. On 8 
June 1692, he was made a deputy to the Massachusetts General 
Court. In 1671 Richard Ellis, in behalf of himself and Isaac Genery, 
notified the town of their hope of having found a copper mine. 

Administration on his estate was granted to his widow, Elizabeth, 
and to John Ellis, his eldest son, 27 Dec. 1694, and the account of 
John Ellis, surviving administrator of his father, Richard Ellis, was 
filed 16 Sept. 1697. (Suffolk Probate, 3: 516; 11: 339.)

boat with Harlakenden and Shepard. In the list of people who sailed 
"iiij July 1635, In the Defence de Lond ... " are 

W m ffrench 30 

Eliza, ffrench his wfe 32 
Elizabeth ffrench 6 

Marie ffrench 2 \ 

ffrancis ffrench 10 
John ffrench mo. 5 

He had a brother, John French, who also came to this country. 
John French had by a wife Joanna; John, born about 1635 ; Sarah, born 
Oct. 1637; Joseph, born 4 Apr. 1640; Nathaniel, born 7 June 1643. 
John French was a tailor. He was buried 16 Feb. 1645-6, and his 
wife Joanna was buried 20 Jan. 1645-6, in Cambridge. 

On the 2 of April 1650, the Court granted "W m ffrench right and 
power of administration upon the estate of his Bro: Jno ffrench 
deceased and doe confirme and allow of his disposall of the children". 
Oct. 6, 1657, "Leift W m ffrench attested upon oath to his Bro: Jn° 
ffrenches Inventory". In the account he renders the Court is the 
following: "pad more for placeing Forth of ye children: For Y e 
yongest beeing 3 yeares old to m r sparhauke", "Joseph to gooman for 
skooling", "for Cloathes for John in his placing to Tho brookes", 
" for Sarah placing her w th Bro : Fessenden " . " Lieut. William ffrench 
appearing before the County Court at Cambridge, octo 1657," swore 
to the above account. 

William French removed to Billerica in 1652 where he bought part 
of the Dudley Farm and had his house near that Ralph Hill who 
called him "brother" in his Will. He married in England about 
16xx, Elizabeth, who was born in 1603, and died in Billerica 31 Mar. 
1667-8, aged sixty-four years. He married (2), in Billerica, 6 May 
1669, Mary (Lothrop) Stearns, daughter of Thomas and Mary 
Lothrop and widow of John Stearns, born in Barnstable, Mass., 4 
Oct. 1640, living in 1735, "very aged". She married (1), Dec. 1656, 
John Stearns, who died 5 Mar. 1668-9 in Billerica. She married (3), 
29 June 1687, Isaac Mixer of Watertown. 

William French was lieutenant of the Billerica company for many 
years, being made so in 1647. He served Billerica as its deputy to 



196 SCOTT GENEALOGY 

the Massachusetts General Court in 1660, 1663, 1664. He was born 
in 1605, according to his age on emigrating and his age at death, and 
so was thirty-five years older than his second wife. It seems probable 
that at the time of his marriage to her it was arranged that only her 
children by him should inherit his property for they are the only ones 
mentioned in its final disposition. The children given here are the 
ones credited to him, but it seems possible that the Sarah and John 
given in the list might have been the children of John French. 

Lieut. William French died in Billerica, 20 Nov. 1681, aged seventy- 
eight. The following petition was presented to the Court, 21 Dec. 
1680: 

"To the Honored County Court siting at Charlstowne the 21 : of december 
1680: the humbell petion of us whoe are the subscribers doe humbely shew 
that wheras our father John Sternes of Billerica now desesed: did leave us a

"Request of Selectmen of Billerica for the Court to take into consideration

At the request of his friend Deacon Tompson & his sonne Jacob ffrench are 
impowrd to assist his wife in the ordering & disposeing of his estate, so as 
may best conduce for the supply of the family 21 Dec. 1680." 

The estate of Lt. William French of Billerica, who deceased the 
20-9m-1681, amounting to £182-4-0, was divided, one third part to 
the widow and the remaining two thirds to the three children. To

FISHER 



THOMAS FISHER, of Winston, Suffolk, England, with wife 
Elizabeth, was in Cambridge in 1634. He was made Freeman, 4 
Mar. 1635, and removed to Dedham in 1637 where he was given a 
house lot, 28 July 1637. He died 10 Aug. 1638, while engaged in 
building the meeting house. After his death, his wife obtained per- 
mission to sell half of her lot "for the bringing up of the children". 
She was admitted to the church, 21 Aug. 1640, and died 31 Jan. 1652. 
The Rev. John Allen in his Will gave to his near kinsman, Samuel 
Fisher, his land at Wrentham, but just how he was related is not 
known. 

Children, said by some authorities to have come from England with 
their parents, but probably born here: 

i. Samuel, b. abt. 1634; m. 22 Mar. 1659, Meletiah Snow. 
ii. Constance, d. 1 Dec. 1638, Dedham. 
iii. Thomas, b. ; m. 11 Dec. 1666, Rebecca Woodward. 

SAMUEL 2 FISHER (Thomas x ), born probably about 1634, died 
in Wrentham, Mass., 5 Jan. 1702-3; "Samuel Fisher & Milcha Snow, 
dau. Thomas Snow of Boston were married 22nd March by John 
Endicott Gov.", 1659. She was born in Boston 30 Sept. 1638 and 
baptised in the First Church, aged about three years, 12 Sept. 1641, 
and died in Wrentham, 15 Mar. 1709-10 (p. 200). 

The Dedham Church Records give : 

"Samuell Fisher was received to full co'munion in all y e ordinances 
& his wife to y e co'munion of this church 31 d ll m 63." 

" Samuell ye sone & daughter of y e said Samuell Fisher & 

his wife were baptised 28 d 12 m 1663." 

"Millatiah, ye daughter of our brother Samuell Fisher was baptised 
ye 5 d *y 3 m 1667." 

He settled in Wrentham even before it became a town and was 
deacon of the church there many years. 

He made a very peculiar will which is recorded in the Suffolk County 
Registry: 

"The Last Will and Testament of Samuel Fisher. 
"My Deer Wife and Children I am now speaking my last to you which 
to me is Awful and I hope will be to you of Searious consideration, I know 
not y e day of my death therefore it behoveth me in each respect to be for

He settled first at Dorchester, where his wife's father was living, 
and appears, with his wife, as a member of the church there, 26 Aug. 
1636. He lived in Dorchester, until about 1655, when he bought land 
in Gloucester of William Perkins, removed there and became a Ruling 
Elder in the church. In 1657, he sued William Stephens for with- 
holding a list of names of those who had pledged money for his support 
as Elder, he having received a call to preach there and knowing an 
amount of money had been subscribed to pay him for his labors. He 
served on the Jury of Tryalls in 1659. In 1663, the town again raised 
money to pay him for his work in the public ministry. He served on 
a coroner's jury in 1673. 3 June 1675, having removed to Brook- 
field, Mass., he sold land in Gloucester to Francis Norwood.

LISTER 



ANDREW LISTER (Lyster or Lester), birth unknown, died in 
New London, Conn., 7 June 1669; married before 1642, Barberie 

, who died in New London, 2 Feb. 1654. He married (2), 

Joanna, widow of Robert Hempstead, after June 1655, the date of 
Robert Hempstead's death. He is credited with a third wife Anna, 
who married, after his death, Isaac Willey, and died in 1692, but the 
name of Joanna and Anna are so often used interchangeably that it is 
possible that he only had two wives. 

Andrew Lister was in Gloucester before 1642. He served the town 
as constable in 1646, and was licensed as an innholder in 1648. In 
1649, Samuel Doliber of Marblehead sued Andrew Lister and the 
following letter was filed in Court. It is dated " Gloster, 10:8: 1649 ", 
and is written by Andrew Lister: 

"Samuel Daullouer my loue rememb rd unto you this is to intreat you to 
send me word what you would haue me to due aboute that I am to peay you 
for the cow that I bought of you I intreate you to send me word if you will 
tack it by a bill to mester Russell or to any marchant else and to send word by 
the first opetunity you can for I thincke ... to fear it is my time to 
peay you now and so I reste yours in what I meay." 

In 1650, he sold all his property in Gloucester and removed to New 
London, grants of land in that town having been made to a number 
of the men of Gloucester. In 1652, he was associated with Mr. Deni- 
son, Hugh Calkins, and John Elderkin in an attempt to drain the 
marshes. He resided on the neck and in 1664 was taxed on £170, 
being one of thirteen men in New London who had estates over £150 
in value.

BATCHELDER 



The Batchelder family of Essex County, Mass., finds its origin in 
three brothers, who came from the county of Kent, England, in 1637. 
The family lived in the vicinity of Canterbury for some decades, at 
least, before their emigration. The Canterbury Marriage Licenses 
give the following: 

"Mark Bacheler of Minster in Thanet, yeoman, & Mary Fantinge,

"John Bacheler, of Minster in Thanet & Mary Stonehouse, of 
Chartham, widow, 17 Oct. 1595" 

" Christopher Bacheler, of St. George's, Canterbury & Ann Deall, 
of Teynham, maiden, 4 May 1586." 

Anthony Bacheler, son of Christofer Bacheler, was baptised at St. 
George's, 17 June 1587. 

Abigail Bacheler, daughter of Samuel Bacheler, Minister and Curate 
of Denton, was baptised 12 Sept. 1617, at St. George's. 

At St. Paul's, Canterbury, is recorded, 28 Aug. 1597, the baptism of 
William, son of Cristopher Bacheler. 

The Visitation of Kent, 1619, gives the marriage of Catharine, 
daughter of Christopher Bacheler of the city of Canterbury to Edward 
Kemp of Dover. The Marriage Licenses give, John Kemp of Dover 
& Catharine Bacheler of St. M. Bredin's, Canterbury, maiden, at 
Bridge, 21 July 1611. 

It is quite probable that Mark and Mary (Fantinge) Bacheler, 
licensed to marry in 1598, were the parents of the three who came to 
New England. They were: 

i. Henry 2 , b. 1602, d. Salem, Mass., 2 Feb. 1679; m. at Thanington, 
Kent, England, Martha Wilson, d. 4 Apr. 1686. "Henry 
Batcheller of St. George's, Canterbury, Brewer & Bachelor, aged 
about 35, and Martha Wilson of the same parish, maiden, about 
32, at Thanington, Joseph Bacheler of Canterbury, tailor, bonds., 
15 Apr. 1637." (Canterbury Marriage Licenses.) "Henry 
Bacheler of Dover, Brewer, Martha his wife, 4 servants." (List 
of Passengers, 9 June 1637.) Account of the administration on 
the estate of Henry Batchelder of Ipswich, deceased, intestate, 
is filed in the Essex County court. The widow had evidently 
been insane for some years after his death. He left no children 
and his nearest of kin were his brothers' children, as follows : the 
children of Joseph Batchelder who died before the intestate,

John, Elizabeth, and Hannah Batchelder; the children of John 
Batchelder who outlived ye uncle, John Batchelder, Joshua 
Batchelder and Hannah Batchelder; the children of Joseph 
Batchelder who are dead since their uncle died, Hannah Batch- 
elder, alias Warner, who left children; the children of John

Jos h Batchelder who left children. Distribution to John, Eliza- 
beth, Hannah, children of Joseph Batchelder, deceased, brother 
to Henry, deceased; to John, Joseph and Hannah, children of 
John Batchelder deceased, brother to Henry, deceased. There 
is no date to this account but it was probably filed in 1696. 
The widow had been dead nearly ten years. 

ii. Joseph, b. 1604, probably on the Isle of Thanet, Kent, England; 
m. Elizabeth Dickinson. 

iii. John, b. 1610, deposed in 1658, ae. abt. 47 y.; m. Mary 

and Elizabeth Herrick. "John Bachelor of Canterbury, 
taylor." (List of Passengers, 9 June 1637.) 

JOSEPH 2 BATCHELDER, born probably on the Isle of Thanet, 
Kent, England, but perhaps at Canterbury, in 1604, died about 1647, 
in Wenham, Mass.; was licensed to be married as follows: "Joseph 
Batcheler of St. George's Canterbury, taylor, bachelor, aged 24 and 
upward and Elizabeth Dickinson, same parish, maiden, aged about 
15, daughter of Susan Dickinson, same parish, widow, who consents 
as is testified by Richard Myles at Canterbury, Carpenter. At Than- 
ington, 22 Sept. 1628. Elizabeth Dickinson was baptised at St. 
George's, 10 Apr. 1614." She was daughter of Robert and Susan 
(Kene) Dickinson, and died in Wenham, probably about 1657. 

Robert Dickinson was chief warden of St. George's, Canterbury, 
and was buried 20 Apr. 1627. He married 22 Oct. 1611, Susan Kene, 
who was his widow in 1628. Their children were (1), Elizabeth, 
baptised 10 Apr. 1614; (2), Matthew, baptised 15 Sept. 1622; (3), 
Peter, baptised 11 June 1626. 

In a list of "persons who have taken passage from the town and 
port of Sandwich for the American Plantations, 9 June 1637", is 
found, "Joseph Bacheler, of Canterbury, taylor, Elizabeth his wife, 
one child and three servants". He was accompanied also by his 
brothers, Henry and John. He settled at Salem, Mass., where he was 
made Freeman, 16 Mar. 1638. He served as deputy in 1643. Besides 
his own property he brought with him stock and goods of a Henry 
Paramour of the Isle of Thanet, which he was to invest and sell and 
the proceeds of which he was to return to Paramour. Before he had 
a chance to do so, James Brocke, of Ratcliffe, mariner sued him for 
the goods entrusted to his care by Henry Paramour, in Apr. 1637 
(Lechford), but the Court settled the case by allowing Joseph Batchel- 
der a certain amount for his services and returning the rest to Henry 
Paramour, Gentleman, of the Isle of Thanet in Kent.

An inventory of his estate was taken 30 Mar. 1656-7 and states 
that Joseph Batchelder deceased about ten years ago. Administra- 
tion on his estate was granted 31 Mar. 1656-7 to his son "Marke 
Bachelour". Mark brought into court, 1 July 1657, an inventory of 
his father's and mother's estates, amounting to £84 4d. It was 
ordered to be paid to his brother John, under twenty-one and his 
sisters, Elizabeth and Hannah, under eighteen.

GOODALE 



ROBERT GOODALE was born in England in 1604, died in Salem, 
Mass., between 12 Oct. 1682 and 27 June 1683, married about 1629 

Katharine , born in 1606, died before 1668. He married (2), 

Margaret . 

Robert Goodale with his family sailed in the "Elizabeth" of Ips- 
wich, the last of April 1634 and appears in the shipping list of that 
vessel as follows: 

Robert Goodall ) aged 30 

Katherin his wife wife J aged 28." 

(Mary Goodale aged 4 
Abraham Goodale aged 2 
Isaake Goodale aged halfe a yeare" 

He settled at Salem, Mass., where he was a proprietor by 1636. 
In 1668, he deeded land to his daughter Hannah Killum, and with wife 
Margaret he sold land adjoining. In 1672, there was a case in the 
Essex County Court which proves up various relationships in the 
family. A certain John Smith married a daughter of Robert Goodale, 
probably the eldest daughter, Mary. Zachariah, a son of Goodale, 
married Elizabeth Beacham, daughter of Edward Beacham. Eliza- 
beth calls, in testimony, John Smith her "brother" and her "brother- 
in-law". Patience Goodale (wife of Isaac) and Hannah Killum call 
Elizabeth their "sister", etc. 

Robert Goodale made his Will "aged", 12 Oct. 1682, proved 27 
June 1683. He gives to wife, to daughter Elizabeth Bennett, to grand- 
child John Smith. The widow Margaret deposed in Court. He had 
evidently provided for his other children before. 

Children: 

i. Mart, b. 1630; probably m. John Smith.

SHERMAN 



WILLIAM SHERMAN, the progenitor of the Shermans of Ply- 
mouth County, was in Plymouth before 1632. He probably came 
over in 1629, for in that year the Company in London gave liberty to 
William Sherman to bring in his kine from Northampton in fourteen 
days from Feb. 26, probably to be embarqued in the fleet with Higgin- 
son. He had lands granted to him at Green Harbor, in 1640. He 
married, in Plymouth, 21 Dec. 1638, Prudence Hill, possibly sister 
of Ralph Hill, who apparently deceased before him. He left no Will, 
but in 1673, settled his real estate on his sons. His inventory was 
filed 30 Dec. 1680. He was buried at Marshfield, 25 Oct. 1679.

HATCH 



The Hatch* family, from which the New England family descends, 
has lived for at least six centuries in Kent, England. The name is 
apparently derived from the Anglo-Saxon noun, haec, Middle Eng- 
lish, hacche, later hatch, meaning a gate or wicket. When surnames 
first came into use, locations were frequently employed as the means 
of distinguishing two men of the same first name. As John living 
near the well would be called John at Well, and John, living by the 
Wood, John atte Wood. Later the prefix would be dropped or incor- 
porated as a part of the name. 

JOHN AT HECCHE, of Sellinge, co. Kent, England, probably 
was born about 1415, and died after 15 Nov. 1464. He had a wife 
Agnes living when he made his Will. He was undoubtedly descended 
from a family of Atte Hacches of the hundred of Calehill which con- 
tains the parishes of Charing and Westwell in which, contemporane- 
ously with John, of Sellinge, were others of the name. He was prob- 
ably a miller. 

The Will of John at Hecche of Sellyng next Monks Horton, was 
made 15 Nov. 1464. My body to be buried in the churchyard of 
Selling. The residue of all my goods I give to Agnes my wife and 
Thomas my son; and I make them my executors. William Knight, 
John Parys, William Smyth, John Webbe, and William at Melle are

ments until Thomas at hecche, my son, shall come to the age of twenty- 
four years, when he shall have one third of the lands. My son John 
to have a third of the lands when he shall come to the age of twenty- 
four years ; and when my son William shall come to the age of twenty- 
four years, then my feoffees shall make over the lands to my three 
sons equally, forever, they paying to Agnes their mother 20s. a year 
during her life. If all my sons die before the age of twenty-four, 
then my wife Agnes shall have the lands for her life, and after her 
death they shall be sold and the money shall be employed to provide a

William reach their full ages my feoffees shall allow her 20s. a year

There is no record of probate and no witnesses. 
Children : 

i. Thomas 2 , b. probably abt. 1442. 
ii. John, b. probably abt. 1444. 
iii. William, b. probably abt. 1446. 

THOMAS 2 AT HECCHE (John l ), of Sellinge, co. Kent, must have 
been born about 1442, as he was at least twenty-one in 1464, when his 
father appointed him one of his executors, but was then under twenty- 
four. In some of the counties of England, it frequently happened 
that a minor was appointed executor, but this was never the custom 
in Kent. No will or administration of his has been found. He in- 
herited a portion of his father's lands in Sellinge, married and became 
the father of a son Thomas. If it were not for the fact that minor 
executors are unknown in Kent, it might be that this Thomas was 
born much later, about 1458, and was himself the " Thomas the elder" 
whom the pedigree estimates to have been born about 1465 and to have 
been a son of Thomas born about 1442. 

Child: 

i. Thomas 3 , b. probably abt. 1465. 

THOMAS 3 HACHE (Thomas 2 , John l % of Sellinge, co. Kent, was 
born probably about 1465. He held the manor of Hodyford, was 
assessed as "Thomas Hatche the elder" in the hundred of Street, in 
the subsidy of 1524, and died between 12 Dec. 1530 and 31 Dec. 1534.

den. Thomas Hatche was churchwarden at Tenterden in 1565. 
His daughters are mentioned in his administration, his sons in the 
Will of his brother Stephen Hatche, and both are mentioned with their 
children and some grandchildren, in the Will of his eldest son John 
Hatche, in 1628-9. (See New England Historical and Genealog-

ELDER WILLIAM 7 HATCH (William 6 , Thomas 5 , John the 
Younger 4 , Thomas 3 , Thomas 2 , John *), born about 1598, in co. Kent, 
England, probably, died at Scituate, Mass., 6 Nov. 1651; married 
probably a first wife who was the mother of Walter Hatch; married 
secondly, probably at Thanington, co. Kent, by license of 9 July 1624, 
Jane Young, of Thanington, born about 1596. She married secondly, 
at Scituate 31 Mar. 1653, Elder Thomas King and died at Scituate, 8 
Oct. 1653. Her parents are unknown, but it is likely that Edward 
Young of Thanington, one of the bondsmen on the licence, was a near 
kinsman. 

William Hatch resided at Ashford, Wye, and Sandwich, co. Kent, 
before coming to New England. He was a woolen-draper and mer- 
chant. He removed with his family from Wye to Sandwich about 
1634. He embarked for America in Mar. 1634-5, sailing from Sand- 



220 SCOTT GENEALOGY 

wich in the ship "Hercules" with his wife Jane, five children, and six 
servants. His cousin, Lydia (Huckstep) Tilden, with her husband, 
Nathaniel Tilden, and their children, sailed on the same ship. They 
all settled at Scituate, Mass. William Hatch built himself a house on 
Kent St., and was made freeman, 5 Jan. 1635-6. He returned to 
England but came again in Apr. 1638, in the "Castle." In 1643, he 
was chosen the first ruling elder of the Second Church of Scituate, and 
in August of that year, he, with his sons Walter and John, appears on 
the list of those able to bear arms in Scituate (over 16 and under 60 
years of age) . In the same year he was made lieutenant of the train- 
band. 

William Hatch made his Will 5 Nov. 1651, exhibited in court 3 
June 1652. "I William hatch the elder of Scittuate in the collony 
of New Plymouth in america Planter being weake in body but of

WALTER 8 HATCH (William 7 , William 6 , Thomas 6 , John the

beth Holbrook, daughter of Thomas and Jane Holbrook, born in 
England about 1634, died after 1669 (p. 223). He married (2), at 
Marshfield, 5 Aug. 1674, Mary Stable. 

He settled in that part of Scituate called "The Two Miles" which 
became a part of Marshfield in 1788. He was a shipwright and owned 
a ship yard in Scituate. He also possessed an interest in an iron 
mine. He served as constable June 1655. 

He made a Will 3 Mar. 1681-2, which was not proven, as his son 
Antipas having become mentally unsound, he made a second Will 
providing for his care 20 Aug. 1698. This was proved 2 Apr. 1701. 
In it he gave to eldest son, Samuel, a share in the iron works; to sons 
John and Israel, the fulling mill, corn mill, and two hundred and sixty 
acres of land; to youngest son Joseph, land in Freetown; to these four 
sons 3,375 acres of land that he bought of his cousin Thomas Hatch; 
he gave legacies to his wife Mary; daughter Jane Sherman; and daugh-

HOLBROOK 



THOMAS HOLBROOK, was born in England in 1601 and died in 
Weymouth, Mass., between 1673 and 1676; married, probably in 

England, about 1617, Jane , born in 1601, died in Weymouth, 

24 Apr. 1677. 

He was a resident of Broadway, Archdeaconry of Taunton, Somer- 
set, England, before he emigrated to America. With his family, he 
sailed from Weymouth, England, "ye 20 th Mar. 1635" (1635-6). 
The list of his family below shows an error, the age for John should be 
seventeen instead of eleven and this last age probably belongs to Wil- 
liam. It is an evident error of the scribe who probably doubled two 
children together. 

"Somerset, 

Thomas Holbrooke of Broudway aged 34: yeare 

Jane Holbrook his wife aged 34 yeare 

John Holbrook his sonne aged 11 yeare 

Thomas Holbrook his sonne aged 10 yeare 

Anne Holbrook his daught r aged 5 yea 

Elizabeth his daught r aged 1 yeare" 
He settled at Weymouth, Mass., where he was a selectman in 1641, 
'45, '46, '51, '52, '54. He was granted land at Rehoboth, Mass., but 
apparently never lived there. He was a Constable in 1669. 

He made his Will "Anno Domini Dec. 31, 1668. Thomas Hol- 
brook of Weymouth . . . being sick and weak in body . . . 
do make this my last will. ... I give . . . unto Jane, my 
beloved wife, during her life my whole estate . . . and do request 
my son John Holbrooke and my son Wm. Holbroke and my son Tho. 
Holbrooke to be helpful to my wife . . . to . . . give their 
Mother the best advice as she is ancient and weak of body . . . 
I give . . . unto my endeared children all my estate ... at 
my wife Jane's decease, there being six of them, three sons and three 
daughters to be equally divided between them always provided that 
my eldest son John Holbrooke shall have a double portion and the 
rest of my estate to be equally divided, viz., unto my son Thomas 
Holbrook my son W m Holbrooke unto my daughter Anne Rennolds, 
unto my daughter Elizabeth Hatch and unto my daughter Jane 
Drake. ... I give unto my grandchild John Holbrooke the eld- 
est, my sword. ... I give unto my Grandchild Peter Holbrooke

loving wife . . . Jane Holbrooke, executrix during her life and 
at her decease I do appoint . . . executor . . . my loving 
son John Holbrook — 

The mark of Thomas (T.H.) Holbrook" 

In a codicil made 31 Dec. 1673, he gave his dwelling to his grand- 
child Peter. He died between 1674 and 1677, when the Will was 
proved. The widow Jane, died 24 Apr. 1677.

Hatch (p. 221).

CLAPP 



The Clapp family which settled early in New England came from 
Devonshire, England. The father of the celebrated Captain Roger 
Clapp was of Salcombe Regis when he made his Will, but it seems 
probable that the parent home was in Sidbury where, unfortunately, 
the parish records are gone. The transcripts of the parish have never 
been examined by anyone who has made the result available to 
searchers on this side of the ocean. 

There were various emigrants of the name of Clapp, and many 
erroneous ideas of the relationship between them have been put in 
print. The examination of all the records in this family now in 
America, known to the author, gives the following probable pedigree. 
The Will of John Clapp of Dorchester, Mass., which is of great value, 
called Roger Clapp, "cousin", and from this it is assumed that Roger's 
father and John's were brothers. There are however other ways in 
which the two men could be "cousins", according to the custom of 
that day, when the word not only expressed the relationship between 
brothers' children, but also between an uncle and nephew or niece. 
If William Clapp of Salcombe Regis, were a brother of Nicholas Clapp 
of Venn Ottery, it seems probable that he was an older and presumably 
a half brother of Nicholas. It is unfortunate that only the briefest 
abstracts of Wills could be examined, as the full Wills might clear up 
some of the doubtful points. The line of interest here goes to Nicholas 
Clapp of Venn Ottery and Sidbury. 

The line apparently begins with a William Clapp of Sidbury, who 
was born as early as 1500. At the time of his death, his wife was 
named Alice and she probably was the mother of his children. In his 
Will, made 29 May 1555, proved at Exeter, 25 July 1555, he calls 
himself, of Sidbury, in the parish of Harforde. He bequeathed to two 
daughters, Beaton and Joan, at time of making not married; to 
Thomas Ybden; to two of William Ybden's children; to Gyllam Bad- 
stone; to Alse ynglande; to daughter of same Alse; to "hye aulte of 
Sydbury"; to two of my son's children; to Richard Clappe; residue to 
Alsse, wife: Wit: John Fullbrooke, Thomas Badstone. 

This man was probably the great grandfather of Nicholas Clapp, 
and as he apparently had only one son, that son was the grandfather. 
If the Richard mentioned above is a grandson it is probably he that 
was the father, as there is reason to think that Nicholas' father was 
named Richard. If the Richard above was the son and evidently 



ANCESTRAL LINES OF HARRIETT GRACE SCOTT 225 

only son of William, then the line would run William \ Richard 2 , 
(Richard? ) 3 , Nicholas 4 , but, of course, these intermediate names are 
merely hypothetical. (Richard? ) 3 born before 1650, perhaps mar- 
ried twice. The fact that Nicholas' mother, Christian Clapp, does not 
mention William, of Salcombe Regis, as a child, coupled with the 
omission of any mention of him in the Will of her son Peter, rather 
suggests that he may have been the son of an earlier marriage of her 
husband, Clapp, if he were brother to Nicholas.* 

(Richard?) Clapp died before 1608. Christian Clapp, of Sidbury, 
widow, sick of body, made her Will, 25 July 1608, proved at Exeter, 
by the executor, Nicholas Clappe, of Sidbury, 12 Aug. 1608. She 
bequeathed to the poor of Sidbury; to godchildren; "to god-daughter 
dwelling at Broadclist one Petecotte with browne charmlet bodyes ; to 
Mary Clapp my gowne; to Elizabeth Clapp my sonn Nicholas, his 
wife, my cloak; to Prudence Clapp, Anne Crutchet & Ann Windsam 
all my lynninge aparell to be equally devided; to Ann Windsam my 
f etherbed a bolster a red co v r let & the matres ; to Prudence Clapp my 
cubbord at Pynhill & a Tableboard & a brasen Pann ; to foresaid Ann 
Windsam £10 to be ymployd for her benefitt & if she dye before 
twentye then said £10 to remayne to Prudence Clapp: to my Daugh- 
ter Eyde Crutchett, £10; to Richard Clapp, my son Nicholas, his son, 
one chest; to Ellen Lee my kyrtle; to Ann Windsham a brasen pan & 
a crock & my coffer; residue to sonne Nicholas Clapp and he to be 
Executor. Wit: William Ebdon & James Taylor". 

Inventory taken by William Warren, John Southwood, Thomas 
Searle & Thomas Ebdon, 9 Aug. 1608. Bond of Nicholas Clapp, of 
Sidbury, husbandman, for £30. 

Accepting as a fact that William, of Salcombe Regis, was a brother 
of Nicholas Clapp, we have the following children for (Richard?) 3 
Clapp. 

i. William 4 , of Salcombe Regis, b. about 1570, d. 1 Mar. 1640; m. 
in Sidmouth, 11 Sept. 1593, Jone, daughter of Robert Channon 
of Sidmouth, d. before 1630. William Clapp, the elder, of Sal- 
combe Regis, made a Will that was proved at Exeter, by Robert 
Clapp, 25 Mar. 1641. He bequeathed to son Edward Clapp; 
to son Roger Clapp; to daughter Jane; to daughter Sarah; to 
grandchild William Weeks; to son Robert Clapp; to son John 

* The Will of John Hooke of Branscombe made the 29 Jan. 1582, proved 21 May 
1584, shows two daughters who intermarried in the Clapp and Weeks family. He 
bequeathed to sons Tristram, James, and William Hooke; daughter Anne Hooke; son 
John Hooke the elder; sons Richard, Elize, and Tho: Hooke, son John Hooke the 
younger, daughter Elizabeth Weeks, daughter Jane Clapp. Wife Elizabeth, executrix. 
Brothers-in-law Hugh Whetcomb & John Whetcomb of Sherborn and Robert Lide of 
Branscomb, overseers : my lands called Radish in Parish Colyton. My daughter Ann, 
by my second wife Elizabeth. Wit : John Carpenter, Vicar of Branscomb. Just whom 
the daughters married is not shown by any data at hand but these earlier intermarriages 
are interesting as proof of family connections.

NICHOLAS 4 CLAPP, born probably in Sidbury, was living there, 
married and with children in 1608, and was probably still living there 
in 1622. He removed to Venn Ottery, before Mar. 1631 with his son 
Richard who was married there in 1633 and who, apparently, always 
resided in that parish. It is inferred that Nicholas had not lived 
long in Venn Ottery at the time of his death in 1631, because the only 
items in the Venn Ottery register about him is the record of his burial, 
14 Mar. 1631 (1631-2), and of his wife's burial, 24 Mar. 1631. There 
is also on the register, the burial of a Robert Clapp, 10 Sept. 1629. 
This may have been Robert, son of Nicholas, or his brother, Robert, 
who was living in 1622. Nicholas Clapp married before 1608, prob- 
ably about 1603, Elizabeth . He made his Will two days 

before his burial, dated 14 Mar. 1631-2, proved 29 Mar. 1632.

The Will was proved 30 Aug. 1655. The Inventory amounted 
to £140. 

x. Ambrose, b. abt. 1620, probably remained in England. 

THOMAS 5 CLAPP (Nicholas*, 3 , Richard 2 , William 1 ), 

was born probably in Sidbury in 1609. Thomas Clapp Sen. deposed in 



ANCESTRAL LINES OF HARRIETT GRACE SCOTT 231 

1678 aged " about 69 yeares ". This would be more apt to be accurate 
than his age as given in his Will in 1684, when he would be older and 
not only more likely to err but also likely to magnify his age. 
Besides Nicholas calls Richard his eldest son and Richard did not 
marry until 1633. If Thomas was, as his Will says, in his eighty- 
seventh year in 1684, he would have been born in 1597 and Richard 
must have been born as early as 1595, and it is evident that the range 
of births of all Nicholas' children must have been later from the other 
evidence regarding them. He married, probably second, Abigail 

, who died after 1 684 . He may have been first at Dorchester, but 

settled at Weymouth where he was made a Freeman 13 Mar. 1638-9. 
He removed to Scituate in a few years, being made a Freeman of 
Plymouth Colony, 5 June 1644. He was a deacon in the church, 
served the town as an officer and was deputy to the General Court. 
He died in Scituate, 20 Apr. 1684. His Will was proved 4 June 1684.

BURSLEY 



JOHN BURSLEY came to New England very early, perhaps 
before Governor Endicott. In 1629, he was at Wessaguscus, now 
Weymouth, associated with Mr. William Jeffrey. He married in 
Sandwich, Mass., 28 Nov. 1639, Joanna Hull, daughter of the Rev. 
Joseph Hull (p. 237). He died in 1660 and she married second, Dolar 
Davis, who died in June 1673, aged about eighty. She outlived him 
and died after 1686. 

Mr. John Bursley was the deputy to the General Court from Wey- 
mouth in May 1636, and was placed on a committee to take valuation 
of the estates in the Colony. He was again elected with two others 
in September, but the representatives were considered too many for 
a town of the size of Weymouth, and with one other he was dismissed. 
In Nov. 1637, he served on a committee to settle a boundary line. 
In May 1639 he removed to Barnstable, Mass., with Mr. Joseph Hull 
and others. In 1643 and 1645 he was at Exeter, N. H., and in 1647 at 
Hampton, N. H., and Kittery, Me., but he only visited these places 
for the purposes of trade, his family continuing to reside in Barnstable. 
In 1645, he was constable in Barnstable, and in 1647 he served on the 
Grand Jury. For awhile after his marriage he lived with his father- 
in-law, but about 1650 he removed to a farm in West Barnstable 
where he died in 1660. His inventory was taken 21 Aug. 1660 and 
amounted to £115. At the time of his marriage he must have been 
about forty and his wife about twenty years old.

EARLE 



RALPH EARLE, Captain, was born in 1606, and died in Ports- 
mouth, R. L, about 1678. He married Joan Savage, born about 
1595, died after 1699, but whether she was his only wife and the 
mother of his children is not known. Sewall says in his diary under 
date of Friday 15 Sept. 1699, "Mr. Newton & I rode to Newport: 
see Aged Joan Savage now Earle by the way. Her husband Ralph 
Earle was born 1606 and his wife was ten or eleven years older than 
he; so she is esteemed to be one hundred and five years old". 

Ralph Earle was in Newport by 1 Oct. 1638. On 30 Apr. 1639, 
he signed a declaration with others binding themselves into a com- 
munity, which became Portsmouth. In 1640 he sold land to William 
Baulstone. He was made innkeeper, 26 Aug. 1647, was treasurer of 
the town 2 July 1649 and 1650, and was a member of the General 
Assembly, 29 Apr. 1650. He joined a Troop of Horse in 1667 and 
was later made its captain. In 1651 he was tax assessor and served 
on the Grand Jury in 1669. 

He made his Will 19 Nov. 1673, calling himself "of Portsmouth". 
He gave to eldest son, Ralph Earle; to Ralph, the son of son William 
Earle, to three daughters, Mary, wife of William Cory; Martha wife 
of William Wood; Sarah, widow to late Thomas Cornell. He made 
his wife Joan, his executor and his friend John Tripp, the elder, his 
overseer.

RALPH 2 EARLE (Ralph 1 ), born about 1632, died about 1716, in 
Dartmouth; married before 26 Oct. 1659, Dorcas Sprague, daughter 
of Francis and Lydia Sprague of Duxbury, Mass., birth and death 
unknown (p. 241). 

Ralph Earle settled first in Portsmouth, R. I., with his father, who 
is first called "Senior" in the Records in 1651. He was made a 
Freeman there, with his brother William, 11 May 1658. On Oct. 
26, 1659, Francis Sprague of "Duxburrow", planter, gave to his son- 
in-law Ralph Earle of "Road Hand", one half his share of land at 
Coaksett and Acushena. On the 16 of Dec. 1659, Ralph Earle "of 
Portsmouth on Road Hand", sells to Robert Hazard of Portsmouth, 
with the consent of Dorcas, his wife, "my Quarter share lott and 
portion of land which is the quarter part of one share that belongeth 
to thirty foure; which thirty foure is where the first purchasers of the 
land Comonly Called by the Indian Names of Cushena and Acoaksett 
in the Jurisdiction of New Plymouth", etc. This deed is signed also 
by Dorcas Earle and witnessed by Thomas Browning, Thomas Corn- 
well, John Cornwell. This is evidently the land given him by his 
father-in-law, Francis Sprague. Later he removed to Dartmouth. 
There are no dates of birth recorded for his children and the Earle 
Genealogy gives him no daughters, but deeds in Bristol County prove 
he had at least three. 

Ralph 2 Earle left no Will, but 13 June 1688, he, for love and affec- 
tion, conveyed to son Ralph Earle, one half of Elizabeth Island; Oct. 
20, 1689, he gave son William Earle, 100 acres of land in Dartmouth; 
10 June 1692, he gave to son Joseph Earle 200 acres in Dartmouth 
and at other times he gave land to his son John and to various grand- 
sons. Administration on his estate was granted to his son John 
Earle, 6 Jan. 1717.

SPRAGUE 



FRANCIS SPRAGUE, the ancestor of the Plymouth County 
Spragues, came with his wife, Lydia, in the "Anne", which arrived 
at Plymouth in July, 1623. He probably brought with him his 
daughters, Ann and Mercy. He died about 1668, and his wife died 
before him. 

He shared in the division of land in 1623, and in the division of 
cattle in 1627, at which time he gave the names of his children as 
Ann and Marcy. In July of this year he signed an agreement with 
William Bradford and others pertaining to the carrying on of the fur 
trade. He was taxed 1632-3 at Plymouth but shortly after settled 
at Duxbury. He was made a Freeman of Plymouth Colony 17 June 
1637, and was licensed to sell spirituous liquors. In 1641, he is listed 
as owning land on North River. In 1644, he deeded land to his son- 
in-law, William Lawrence, and in the same year became a proprietor 
of Bridgewater, but never lived there. In 1659, he deeded land to his 
son-in-law, Ralph Earle, of Rhode Island. He continued to keep the 
Inn until 1666 and died within a year or so as his son succeeded him 
in the business.

CLESSON 



MATTHEW CLESSON, an early settler of Northampton, Mass., 
is said to have come from Ireland. He took the oath of Allegiance 
on the 8 Feb. 1678. In 1668 he signed a petition against imposts. 
He married, 22 Dec. 1670, Mary Phelps, daughter of Nathaniel and 
Elizabeth (Copley) Phelps, born in Windsor, Conn., 21 June 1651, 
died in Northampton, 15 Apr. 1687. The history of Northampton 
states that he was probably an indentured servant but he became 
prosperous. He bought the homestead of Thomas Lewis in 1667 and 
sold it to Solomon Stoddard in 1684. His house was burned by the 
Indians in 1675, but the town gave him other land to compensate him 
for the loss of his house. In 1672-3, he contributed to the support of 
Harvard College. After the death of his first wife he married (2), 
21 Nov. 1701, Sarah Hedge, and at the time he made his Will, his 
wife was named Susannah. He died in Deerfield about 1716. His 
Will was made in 1713, and proved 7 Nov. 1716. He calls himself in 
the Will, "late of Northampton", and appoints his sons, Joseph and 
Samuel, his executors. He directs that they arrange a suitable sup- 
port for his widow Susannah, but if she does not choose to accept it, 
then she is to have one third part of the realty for life. The sons, 
Joseph and Samuel Clesson, are given an equal share in the real estate. 
The daughters, Thankful Davis and Mary Bartlett, given a cow and 
steer and utensils in the house after the widow's decease. A legacy 
was given to four grandchildren, the children of daughter, Elizabeth 
Hannum, but their names are not mentioned. 

Children born in Northampton, Mass. : 

i. Maby 2 , b. 13 Aug. 1671, d. 11 Dec. 1671. 
ii. Thankful, b. 19 Sept. 1673; m. Samuel Davis. 
iii. Joseph, b. 23 Apr. 1677, d. before 1683. 
iv. Elizabeth, b. 6 Aug. 1678; m. John Hannum. 
v. Maby, b. 20 Nov. 1679; m. Benjamin Babtlett. 
vi. William, b. 3 Jan. 1680-1, d. before 1709. 

vii. Matthew, b. 31 Dec. 1681, betrothed to Sarah Mattoon. "24 
June 1709, Jon th Williams Slain and Matthew Clesson wounded: 
sd Ma u Clesson dyed 4 days after of his wound." Administra- 
tion on the estate of Matthew Clesson, Jr. granted to his father, 
Matthew Clesson, 21 July 1709. Inventory of £74-16-3. Dis- 
tribution to brothers and sisters as follows : to Joseph and Samuel 
Clesson; to Samuel Davis in the right of his wife, Thankful Davis; 
to Benjamin Bartlett in the right of his wife, Mary Bartlett; to

to Sarah Mattoon "who was like to be married to the deceased", 
viii. Joseph, b. 1683; m. Hannah Arms. "23 June 1709, Joseph Cles-

he was freed in a few days.

THANKFUL 2 CLESSON (Matthew 1 ), born in Northampton, 
Mass., 19 Sept. 1673, died in Brookfield, Mass., after 1719; married 
in Northampton, 28 Oct. 1695, Samuel Davis (p. 243). On the 
Records at Northampton, she is called Thankful " Mason", but the 
division of her brother's estate prove her to have been Thankful 
Clesson.

PHELPS 



WILLIAM PHELPS, the founder of the Phelps family in America, 
came to New England before 19 Oct. 1630, applying on that date to 
be made a Freeman. Savage says he may have come in the "Mary 
and John", and as he settled at Dorchester, it is probable that Savage 
is correct. He was possibly from Tewksbury, England, son of a 
William and Dorothy Phelps, but the proof given in the Phelps 
Genealogy does not seem sufficient to establish this as fact. He is 
said to have brought a wife and six children with him and he certainly 
had children born before he came to New England, and a wife came 
with him who died in 1635. He served on a jury, 9 Nov. 1630, and 
was constable in Dorchester, 27 Sept. 1631. The 9 May 1632, he 
was one of a committee of sixteen for raising of a public stocks. 4 
Mar. 1634, he served on a committee to determine the boundaries 
between Dorchester and Roxbury and in this same year was a dele- 
gate to the Massachusetts General Court. 8 July 1635, he again 
served on a boundary committee, this time to settle bounds between 
Wessaguscus and Barecove, and again was deputy in this year. In 
the fall of 1635, he removed to Windsor, Conn., where he was a magis- 
trate from 1639-1643, 1645-1649, and 1656-1662. He served as 
deputy to the Connecticut General Court from 1645-1657. 

William Phelps married (2), in 1638, Mary Dover, who was a 
passenger in the "Mary and John", and who died in Windsor, 27 
Nov. 1675. 

On the 22 Apr. 1660, he made an agreement with his son Timothy 
who was about to marry Mary, the daughter of Edward Griswold, by 
which Timothy was to live with him, the said William Phelps, and 
enjoy the use of his land while he and his wife lived and at their deaths 
to inherit the whole, excepting a legacy to William, the son of son 
Samuel, Timothy paying legacies also to daughter Mary; to son 
William; to son Samuel; to son Nathaniel; and to son Joseph. 

William Phelps died in Windsor 14 July 1672, in his seventy-third 
year. This would make him born in 1699-00. William, the son of 
William and Dorothy Phelps of Tewksbury, England, was baptised 
19 Aug. 1799, so the age at death and the baptism check. 

Children :

NATHANIEL 2 PHELPS (William 1 ), born in England about 
1627, died in Northampton, Mass., 27 May 1702; married in Wind- 
sor, Conn., 17 Sept. 1650, widow Elizabeth Copley, who died in 
Northampton, 6 Dec. 1712. He came to New England with his 
father, and resided in Windsor, Conn., until 1656, when he removed 
to Northampton Mass., and was made a Freeman there on 11 May 
1681. 

Elizabeth Copley had two children by her husband Copley, (1) 
Thomas Copley; married Ruth Denslow; (2) Elizabeth Copley m. 
(1), 1665, Praisever Turner; m. (2), 1676, Samuel Langton; m. (3),. 
David Alexander. She left a Will in which she mentions sons 
Nathaniel and William Phelps; daughter Abigail Alverd; children of 
daughter Mary Clesson, deceased; son-in-law Matthew Clesson; son 
Thomas Copley; and Samuel and John Lankton; lands of husband 
to be divided equally between sons Nathaniel and William Phelps; 
proved 4 Feb. 1712-13. 

Nathaniel Phelps, Sr. made a Will that was proved at Northampton 
Mass., 2 Sept. 1702. He gives to widow, Elizabeth, sons Nathaniel 
and William, sons-in-law John Alverd and Matthew Clesson; widow 
to have use of all property and the right to give what she desires to 
her son Thomas Copley and her grandsons Samuel and John Langton.

WHITCOMB 



JOHN WHITCOMB, the progenitor of the Whitcomb family in 
America, came from Taunton, Somerset, England. He was married 
at St. Mary's, Taunton, 26 Nov. 1623, to Frances Coggan. He 
came to New England about 1635 and was a proprietor of Dorchester, 
Mass., in 1636. About 1640, he removed to Scituate, Mass., and was 
admitted a Freeman of Plymouth Colony, 3 June 1652. Two years 
later he removed to Lancaster, Mass., where he died 24 Sept. 1662. 
His widow Frances died there 17 May 1671. He left no Will and 7 
Oct. 1662, his widow Frances and "soe many of the children of the 
deceased as therein is concerned " petitioned the court to sanction a 
division of his estate. These petitioners were, Frances Whitcomb, 
the widow; John Whitcomb; Jonathan Whitcomb; Job Whitcomb; 
Josiah Whitcomb; Mary Whitcomb; Abigail Whitcomb. (Midd. 
Pro. 2 : 67-70.) The other children known to be living, i.e., Catharine 
Elmes and Robert and James Whitcomb, were in Scituate and doubt- 
less had received their shares of his estate. 

Children: 

i. Catharine 8 , b. abt. 1624, Taunton, England; m. at Scituate, 25 

Dec. 1644, Rodolphus Elmes, b. abt. 1620. 
ii. John, bapt. 6 Aug. 1626, St. James', Taunton, England; m. Mary 



iii. Jonathan, bapt. 14 Sept. 1628, St. James\ Taunton; m. Hannah. 
iv. Robert, bapt. 20 Dec. 1629, St. James', Taunton; m. Mart 

Cudworth and Mary . 

v. James, b. abt. 1632, d. 23 Nov. 1686; m. abt. 1661, Rebecca 

, and (2) abt. 1679, Elizabeth , lived in Boston, 

Mass. 
vi. Joane, bapt. 18 May 1634, St. James', Taunton, perhaps died 

young. 

vii. Job, b. abt. 1636, probably at Dorchester; m. Mary . 

viii. Josiah, b. 1638, Dorchester; m. Rebecca Waters. 
ix. Abigail, b. abt. 1642, probably in Scituate. 
x. Mary, b. abt. 1647, probably in Scituate. 

ROBERT 2 WHITCOMB {John »), was born in Taunton, England, 
and baptised there in St. James's Church, 20 Dec. 1629, died in Scitu- 
ate, Mass., about Jan. 1696-7; married in Rhode Island, by a Quaker 
preacher in 1659, to Mary Cudworth, daughter of General James 
Cudworth, and remarried to her, 9 Mar. 1660. She was baptised in 



ANCESTRAL LINES OF HARRIETT GRACE SCOTT 255 

Scituate, 23 July 1637, and died there before 1682 and probably before 
1675 (p. 262). He married (2), Mary , who survived him. 

Robert Whitcomb evidently remained behind in Scituate, when his 
father went to Lancaster, he being about twenty-three years old. 
It is possible that his father gave him his property in Scituate and 
for this reason he was not included in the distribution of the Lancaster 
estate. He evidently sympathised warmly with the suffering of the 
persecuted Quakers, like his brother-in-law, Rodolphus Elmes, and 
like James Cudworth, whose daughter he was soon to marry. The 
Court records show that Robert and Mary (Cudworth) Whitcomb 
were married by a Quaker preacher in Rhode Island, and the marriage 
was deemed illegal by the Court and they were ordered to be remarried 
by a Puritan minister, which was done 9 Mar. 1660. Officers were 
appointed by the Court to apprehend the Quaker preacher, "Henry 
Hobson of Road Hand and to take securities for his appearance at 
the Court at Plymouth to answer for his derision of authoritie in 
counterfeiting the solemnising of the marriage of Robert Whetcom 
and Mary Cudworth ". 

Administration on the estate of Robert Whitcomb, late of Scituate 
Deceased, was granted to Mary Whitcomb, his widow, and Israel 
Whitcomb, his eldest son, 2 Feb. 1696-7. (Plymouth Co. Probate, 
1:252.) 

Plymouth Co. Deeds, 6: 40. Israel Whitcomb, of Scituate, sells to Job 
Otis of Scituate, land and dwelling in Scituate, formerly belonging to father 
Robert Whitcomb, late of Scituate, dec'd, excepting "my mother-in-law 
Whitcombs right of thirds in the above bargained parcels of land as relict of 
my father, Robert Whitcomb, late of Scituate, deceased". 13 Jan. 1704-5. 

6: 39. James Whitcomb of Scituate, sells Job. Otis land and dwelling in 
Scituate formerly belonging to father Robert Whitcomb, late of Scituate, 
dec'd, Mary, wife of James, releases her dower, 12 Jan. 1704-5. 

6: 41. Israel Whitcomb, James Whitcomb, Joseph Parker and Mary his 
wife, sell to Job Otis, 10 acres of land in Scituate 20 Jan. 1704-5. 

The children are not recorded but we know that Mary Cudworth 
had four from her father's Will and there seems to have been no 
children by the second wife, who died after 1704-5. 

Children : 

By first wife, Mary Cudworth: 

i. Israel 3 , eldest son, b. 1661; m. 28 May 1700, Mary Stodder.

his sixty-first year; married in Scituate, 22 Nov. 1694, Mary Parker, 
daughter of William and Mary (Turner) Parker, born in Scituate, in 
1667, died in Rochester, 30 Nov. 1729, in her sixty-third year (p. 263). 

James Whitcomb was a "setwork cooper". He removed to 
Rochester, Mass., after 1700. He made his Will, 22 Sept. 1727, 
proved 1 Dec. 1730. 

"In the Name of God, Amen, this twenty second day of September,

one on the 19th and the other on the 21st of the month, is com- 
mented on by the town clerk in the old records.

CUDWORTH 



DR. RALPH CUDWORTH, whose birthplace is unknown, but 
who probably belonged to Lancashire, entered Cambridge in 1588-9, 
received an A.B. degree in 1592-3 and an A.M., in 1596. He was a 
Fellow of Emmanuel College, and lecturer at St. Andrews, Cambridge, 
and was made Vicar of Coggeshall in Essex, 4 Apr. 1606, succeeding 
Thomas Stoughton, who had been the incumbent there since 1600 
but for some reason was deprived of the living. Dr. Cudworth 
resigned the living in 1607 and in 1609, became Vicar of Aller in 
Somerset, and chaplain to King James I, remaining there until his 
death in 1624. He was succeeded by the Rev. John Stoughton, who 
shortly after Dr. Cudworth's death married his widow, and in 1632, 
resigned the living at Aller, and became Curate at St. Mary Alder- 
manbury in London. Stoughton was also a Fellow of Emmanuel, 
receiving his degree of A.B., from Cambridge in 1610-11. After the 
death of Dr. Cudworth's widow, who was probably the first wife of 
Stoughton, he married Jane Brown, daughter of John Brown of 
Frampton in Dorset. His brothers, Israel and Thomas Stoughton, 
were early settlers of Dorchester, Mass., and it is probable that James 
Cudworth came to New England with them. 

These Stoughtons were presumably the sons of the Rev. Thomas 
Stoughton who was the Rector of Coggeshall, just preceding Dr. 
Ralph Cudworth. An early account of John Stoughton says: "In 
October [1635] Dr. Stoughton of Aldermanbury in London, who had 
married Cudworth's widow of Emm. and had the same living given 
by the College in the West country whence a carrier bringing some 
monyes for his wives childrens portions he was traduced (as it seemeth) 
to be a favourer of New England, and a collector of contribution for 
ministers there, &c. ; so that a pursevant was sent to the carrier and 
many halbard-men for him and his study was sealed up, &c, but 
within 2 or 3 days re cognita he returned with credits in the earl of 
Hollands coach". 

Rev. John Stoughton died in May 1639. He made his Will 4 May 
1639, proved on the following 20 May. He mentions his wife, Jane 
Stoughton, his daughters Jane and Mary. His wife Jane was made 
executrix, and he appointed her father John Browne, of Frampton, 
in Dorsetshire, Esq., overseer. Robert Edwards and Edmund 
Foord of London, Merchants, were the witnesses. (Harvey 69.) 



260 SCOTT GENEALOGY 

Dr. Ralph Cudworth's wife was "of the family of Machell and had 
been nurse to Prince Henry, eldest son of James I". 
Dr. Cudworth had at least the following children: 

i. James 2 , b. probably before 1606 and in Cambridge, came to New 

England, 
ii. Rev. Ralph, b. in 1617, in Aller in Somerset, was admitted pen- 
sioner of Emmanuel College, Cambridge, in 1632. He received 
his A.B. in 1635 and his A.M. in 1639. In this latter year he 
was elected a Fellow of Emmanuel and became a popular tutor. 
Parliament appointed him master of Clare Hall in 1645 and 
regius professor of Hebrew. He was installed in the college living 
of North Cadbury, Somerset, in 1650, and elected Master of 
Christ's College in 1654, retaining this last position after the 
Restoration. 

In 1662, he was presented by Archbishop Sheldon to the rec- 
tory of Ashwell, Herts., and in 1678 installed prebendary of 
Gloucester. He d. 26 July 1688, at Christ's College. His dau., 
Damaris Cudworth, who became the second wife of Sir Francis 
Matcham, of Oates, Essex, was a friend of Locke, and evidently 
inherited some of her father's genius for she wrote, in 1696, a 
clearly reasoned "Discourse Concerning the Love of God". 

In 1647, he preached a fine sermon before the House of Com- 
mons. Many of his mss. have never been printed; in 1731 
Bishop Chandler published one, called "A Treatise Concerning 
Eternal and Immutable Morality", which was a really valuable 
contribution to ethics. His great work, however, and the one 
which has made his name known was called "The True Intellec- 
tual System of the Universe". Published in 1678, it is singu- 
larly broad-minded and displays great erudition; its almost end- 
less digressions somewhat obscure its real value. It is unique 
in its marvelously honest statement of its opponents' views, and 
he has been accused sometimes of Atheistic tendencies himself, be- 
cause he stated fairly what he intended to refute. "He has 
raised", says Dry den, "such strong objections against the being 
of a God and Providence that many think he has not answered 
them" — "the common fate", adds Shaftesbury, "of those who 
dare to appear fair authors".

GENERAL JAMES 2 CUD WORTH (Ralph *), was probably born 
in Cambridge, England, before 1606, if we assume that he was older 
than his wife. Her name is unknown, but she died between 1673 and 
1682, probably in Scituate, Mass. They were probably married just 
before he came to New England. The exact date of his arrival is 
unknown but he was here before 1634 and perhaps came in 1632, 
with Mr. Hatherly to Boston. In Dec. 1634, he wrote a long letter 
to his step-father, Rev. John Stoughton, dealing mainly with religious 
matters but in it he mentions his "unkels", evidently Israel and 
Thomas Stoughton. (N. E. His. Gen. Reg. 5: 350.) He was made 
Freeman in Scituate the same year, 1634, and with his wife joined 
Mr. Lothrop's church, 18 Jan. 1634-5. In 1641, he removed to 
Barnstable, where he remained for a few years, returning to Scituate 
in 1646, and making the latter town his home for the rest of his life. 

He was Deputy to the Court from 1649-1656 and Assistant to the 
Governor, 3 June 1656, '57, and '58. He evidently possessed the 
same type of liberal mind as his famous brother, Ralph, with the same 
keen sense of justice and love of fair play, and was against the persecu- 
tion of the Quakers. This brought him into conflict with the bigoted 
rulers of the day and in 1658 he was accused of being an opposer 
of the government, was left out of civil office, deprived of his mili- 
tary command and two years later was disfranchised. The accusa- 
tion was based on a letter to a friend (Mr. Brown ?) then in England 
^.nd who had been an Assistant in Plymouth Colony. It was dated 
at Scituate in 1658 and is very long. In it he says, "As to the state 
& condition of things among us, it is sad, and so like to continue The 
antichristian, persecuting spirit is very active, and that in the powers 
of this world. He that will not lash persecute and punish men that 
differ in matters of religion, must not sit on the bench nor sustain 
any office in the Commonwealth. Last election Mr. Hatherly and 
myself were left off the bench and myself discharged of my Cap- 
tainship because I had entertained some of the Quakers at my house 
thereby that I might be the better acquainted with their principles: I 
thought it better to do so, than with the blind world to censure, con- 
demn, rail at and revile them, when they neither saw their persons nor 
knew any of their Principles". He then scores the inhuman perse- 
cutions strongly and adds that he is "no Quaker", but that he will 
not persecute them. In July 1673, Capt. Cudworth "by a full & 
clear vote is accepted and re-established in the Association and body 
of this Commonwealth", and he was made Assistant again from 1674. 

Cudworth was as prominent in military matters as in civil. He 
was made Captain of Scituate company in 1652, but lost his command, 
in 1658. In 1673, he declined the office of Commander-in-Chief of 
the forces of the Colony, writing to Governor Winslow, an interesting 
letter and giving as one reason for his refusal, "my wife as is well 



262 SCOTT GENEALOGY 

known unto the whole town, is not only a weak woman but has been 
so all along; and now by reason of age, being sixty-seven years and 
upwards, and nature decaying so her illness grows strongly upon 
her " . In 1675, however, he was appointed " General and Commander 
in Chief of all the forces that are or may be sent forth against the 
enemy". It is possible that his wife had died and so he felt himself 
able to accept what he had hitherto declined. In 1681, he was 
made an Agent for the Colony to England and was Deputy Governor. 
In 1682, he went to England but shortly after his arrival in London 
in the autumn of that year, he contracted smallpox from which he 
died. He made his Will in the spring in 1682, dividing his estate into 
six parts, son James was to have two sixths; son Israel, one sixth; 
son Jonathan one sixth; daughter Mary's four children, viz., Israel, 
Robert, James, and Mary Whitcomb, one sixth; daughter Hannah 
Jones, one sixth.

MARY 3 CUDWORTH (James 2 , Ralph 1 ), baptised in Scituate, 
Mass., 23 July 1637, died before 1682, and probably before 1675; 
married Robert Whitcomb (p. 255).

Totman. The jury impanelled for her death, found, "That she 
did gather, dress and eat a root (which she judged the same that 
she had eaten of before) of a poisonous nature, which we believe 
the sole cause of her death". In 1678, her husband, Thomas 
Totman, also died suddenly and the jury ruled that he died from

BLACKMER 



WILLIAM BLACKMER, nephew of Peter Collamore, and prob- 
ably son of and Joan (Collamore) Blackmer and grandson 

of Thomas and Agnes (Adams) Collamore of Northam, Devon, 
England, came to New England in 1653, when Peter Collamore, 
having no sons, wrote to his brother in England to send him one of 
his nephews for an heir. Peter Collamore, however, wanted an heir 
of the Collamore name and so his nephew Anthony Collamore, son of 
his brother John Collamore, came over in 1665. 

Peter 1 Collamore (probably brother of Sir John Collamore of 
Luscott who died in Braunton, Devon, in 1605 and mentioned in his 
Will, John, Thomas, Philip and Mary, children of brother Peter, 
deceased) had an eldest son, Thomas Collamore, born 20 Sept. 1570. 
Peter's estate was administered by his wife Edith and by William 
Blackmore. Children, John Thos., Phillip and Mary. 

Thomas 2 Collamore (Peter l ), born in Northam, England, 20 Sept. 
1570; married 11 Jan. 1608, Agnes Adams and had: 

John 3 Collamore, b. Nov. 1608. 

Mark Collamore, b. Feb. 1610. 

Peter Collamore, b. Dec. 1613, came to America. 

Joan Collamore, b. Oct. 1616; m. Blackmer. Son William 

came to America.* 

William Blackmer was killed by the Indians, 21 Apr. 1676, and his 
house in Scituate was burned. In 1683, Peter 3 Collamore made his 
Will and gave to his wife Mary; to Peter Blackmer; to John Blackmer; 
to Phebe Blackmer and to William Blackmer and to the children of 
Anthony Collamore, etc. 

William Blackmer married in Scituate, 17 July 1666, Elizabeth 
(Curtis) Bankes, sister of William, Richard, Thomas and John 
Curtis, and probably widow of a brother of Richard Bankes. She 
married (3), 24 Jan. 1677, Jacob Bumpas, and died after 1687 
(p. 269). 

The inventory of the estate of William Blackmer of Scituate was 
filed in court 6 July 1676. Elizabeth, the relict, gave oath to its 
truth 3 Oct. 1676. It amounted to £61-15-6.

before 1680, died before 1725 (p. 272). He married (2), in Rochester, 
Mass., 10 Mar. 1725, Sarah Norcutt. 

John Blackmer did not marry until he was over thirty years of age. 
In 1698, when his brother William died, the latter left property to 
John and his sister Phebe, and to the children of his brother Peter, 
but not to any children of John, so it is unlikely that he married before 
1700. He removed to Rochester before 1700, but when Wareham 
was set off from Rochester in 1739, his property fell in that town. 

He made his Will 20 Feb. 1744, proved 6 Nov. 1751. He gives to 
wife Sarah; son William; son John; daughter Phebe, "with what 
she hath had"; daughter Elizabeth. Son William is to have the 
estate and to pay legacies to the others and after his wife's decease, 
the residue is be to divided "equally between my four children '\ Son

CURTIS 



Among the early settlers of Scituate were four brothers and a 
sister by the name of Curtis. They were the children of Richarden 
Chambers by a first husband. She was probably widowed in Eng- 
land, married there, Thomas Chambers, and came with him to New 
England bringing with her the Curtis children, who were presumably 
of a fair age at the time. In her Will she gives her clothes to her son 
Thomas's wife and gives to his daughter Elizabeth, although her own 
daughter Elizabeth was living in the same town with her at the time. 
She only mentions two of her children in her Will, John and Thomas, 
but that the others were of the same family is proven by the dis- 
tribution of John Curtis's estate a few years later. This might be 
explained by supposing that Richard, William and Elizabeth Curtis 
were children of her husband, Curtis, by a former marriage, but it 
is evident that Thomas Curtis must have been born by 1626 and 
unless Elizabeth was twenty years older than her third husband, 
she must have been born after Thomas. Unfortunately no dates in 
connection with these people have yet been found. 

Richarden Chambers died about 1672, in Scituate, Mass. She 
made her Will 18 Nov. 1672, proved 29 Oct. 1673. 

"I, Richarden Chambers of Scittuate, in the jurisdiction of New 
Plymouth in New England, widow, being weake in Body but in

viii. Anna, b. probably before 1680; m. John Blackmer. 
ix. Mary, mentioned in the codicil of her father's Will with a very 
small bequest and not mentioned in the Will. She must have 
died before 1711, as she is not one of the heirs of Remember 
Branch. It looks as if her father intended to disinherit her and 
then mentioned her in the codicil, to show she was not forgotten 
and that the omission was intentional. It is possible that Mary 
was wayward, and the following may refer to her, "17 March 
1700, Mary Branch was cast out of the Marshfield Church for 
breaches of the 7th and 9th commandments". This date is 
between the time of making the Will and the codicil.

He came to New England in the ship "Abigail" in 1635. He 
removed to Sandwich, Mass., about 1637. In 1643, his name appears 
on a list of inhabitants of that town able to bear arms. In 1650 he 
was plaintiff in a case in Court, and in 1654 he contributed money 
toward building a meeting-house. In this year he served the town 
as Surveyor of Highways. 17 July 1657, he agreed to pay a certain 
amount yearly on the minister's salary, and he took the Oath of 
Fidelity in this year. 18 May 1658 he was chosen on the Grand 
Jury. In 1661 he was made Constable and served again on the Jury 
in 1662. He was on a Coroner's Jury in 1664 and in 1665 was one of 
a committee to settle a road dispute. He was granted more land at 
Sandwich in 1669 because he had built a Mill at Little Pond. In 1671, 
he served on a common land committee and, in 1673, was again con- 
stable. His last service was in 1674, when he was made Tax-collector. 

There is apparently no Will or administration of his estate.

BONHAM 



GEORGE BONHAM was born about 1618 probably in England, 
and died in Plymouth, Mass., 28 Apr. 1704, aged eighty-six years; 
he married at Plymouth, Mass., 20 Dec. 1644, Sarah Morton, daugh- 
ter of George and Juliana (Carpenter) Morton, born at Leyden, Hol- 
land, in 1618, died in Plymouth, Mass., 25 Aug. 1691 (p. 283). 

In the early Plymouth records are found three of the name of Bon- 
ham or Bonum, Nicholas, Ruth and George, and probably they were 
all members of the same family. Nicholas Bonham, married 1 Jan. 
1658, Hannah, daughter of Samuel Fuller, and had (Bonham), (1) 
Hannah, b. 8 Oct. 1659; (2) Mary, b. 4 Oct. 1661; (3) Sarah, b. 16 
Feb. 1664. He removed from Barnstable where he was living to New 
Jersey about 1679. Ruth Bonham married 17 Mar. 1646, Richard 
Smyth. 

George Bonham was made a Freeman in Plymouth in 1657. On 
the 1 Nov. 1647, with consent of his wife, Sarah, he sold land there to 
John Faunce, the deed being witnessed by Manasseh and Jane Kemp- 
ton, Sarah's step-father and her mother. In 1653 he bought land of 
Richard Sparrow of Eastham, and Mr. William Paddy of Plymouth, 
and in 1656 he purchased more land of Richard Sparrow and some of 
John Rickard. All this land was in Plymouth. 17 June 1659, he 
bought more land there of Nathaniel Masterson. He built a house in 
Plymouth in 1678, which is still standing. A year later, on the 21 Feb. 
1679, he deeded land to his daughter Ruth and her husband Robert 
Barrow. He witnessed the will of Capt. Thomas Southworth, his 
cousin by marriage, in 1669. With Nathaniel Wood, "Bro: George 
Bonum" went to Taunton to represent the Plymouth Church at the 
ordination of Rev. Samuel Danforth, 21 Sept. 1687. There was a 
George Bonham who sailed for America, 20 June 1635, in the same 
ship with a John Gorham. His age is given as thirty-one and if 
correct he can not be the same man for the Plymouth records say: 
"George Bonan Senior deseaced Aprill 27 th 1704, being upward of 
85 yer of Age".

MORTON 



GEORGE MORTON, the founder of the Morton family in Amer- 
ica, was probably born in Harworth, Nottingham, England, an adjoin- 
ing parish to Bawtry, Nottingham, and Austerfield, York. There 
was a family of Mortons there at the time and it is known that he 
was associated with William Bradford in his early life. "George 
Morton, merchant, from York in England, accompanied by Thomas 
Morton, his brother, and Roger Wilson, his acquaintance, with 
Juliana Carpenter, maid from Bath in England, accompanied by 
Alexander Carpenter, her father, and Alice Carpenter, her sister, and 
Anna Robinson her acquaintance", were married in Leyden, Holland, 
2 Aug. 1612, the banns being published 6 July 1612 (p. 285). 

George Morton came in the "Ann" in 1623 and was assigned eight 
houselots with Experience Mitchell. He brought with him his wife 
and five children. He served the Colony in an official capacity and 
is called by one authority, "The Agent", of those of his sect in Lon- 
don. He is believed to have been the author of "Mourts Relation", 
an early account of New England, published in London in 1622. He 
was evidently a man of worth and it is unfortunate that his services 
to the Colony were ended by his untimely death in June 1624, at the 
age of thirty-nine. 

In 1669, his son, Nathaniel Morton, wrote a history of New Eng- 
land called "New England's Memorial", and in it under the year 
1623 he states: "About fourteen days after came in the ship, called 
the Ann, whereof Mr. William Pierce was master. Two of the prin- 
cipal passengers that came in this ship were Mr. Timothy Hatherly 
and Mr. George Morton. . . . The latter of the two forenamed, 
namely Mr. George Morton, was a pious, gracious, servant of God, 
and very faithful in whatsoever public employment he was betrusted 
withal, and an unfeigned well wilier, and according to his sphere and 
condition, a suitable promoter of the common good and growth of 
the plantation of New Plimouth; laboring to still the discontents that 
sometimes would arise amongst some spirits by reason of the difficul- 
ties of these new beginnings but it pleased God to put a period to his 
days soon after his arrival in New England, not surviving a full year 
after his coming ashore. With much comfort and peace he fell asleep 
in the Lord, in the month of June, anno 1624". His widow married 
(2), Manasseh Kempton, and died 19 Feb. 1664, aged eighty-one 
years.

CARPENTER 



ALEXANDER CARPENTER, who is the ancestor of so many 
Americans, through the marriages of his daughters, apparently never 
came to America. He was in Ley den with the Pilgrims about 1611, 
and had gone there from Wrington, Somerset, England. Apparently 
he returned to Wrington later, as his daughter Mary was living there 
in 1664. William Bradford, who had married her sister, Alice, the 
widow of Edward Southworth, wrote to her, in that year, inviting 
her, since her mother had deceased and she was alone, to come to 
America and make her home with them, and addressed her at Wring- 
ton. She accepted the home thus offered her and outlived her sister 
by many years. 

The Plymouth, Mass., records give as consecutive entries, although 
those preceding and following show that these were entered up much 
later than they occurred, the following: 
"Mistris Alse Bradford deceased the 27 th March 1670. 
Mistres Mary Carpenter deceased the 20 th day of march 1687, 

being Entered into the 91 year of her age. 
Mistris Precila Cooper desceased on the 28 th of desember 1689 

being Entered in to 92 d yeare of her age" 
The Plymouth Colony records give the date of Alice Bradford's 
death as the 26th Mar. 1670.

Somerset:

ii. Agnes, b. abt. 1585; d. Leyden, 3 July 1615; m. Samuel Fuller, 
in Leyden, 24 Apr. 1613. That she was his second wife is proved 
by the following record: "Samuel Fuller, say- weaver, from Lon- 
don in England, widower of Alice Glascock, accompanied by 
Alexander Carpenter, William White, his brother-in-law, Roger 
Wilson, and Edward Southworth, his acquaintances, with Agnes 
Carpenter, single woman, from Wrington in England," accom- 
panied by Agnes White and Alice Carpenter her sister", and 
"Samuel Fuller, say- weaver, from England, widower of Anna 
Carpenter, dwelling on the wall by the Maryport, accompanied

JENNEY 



JOHN JENNEY, the progenitor of the Jenney family in New Eng- 
land, came to Plymouth in 1623. He had been associated with the 
Pilgrims in Leyden, Holland, for some years before the sailing of the 
"Mayflower". The records of Leyden give us the marriage of "John 
Jenney, single man, brewer's man, from Norwich in England, now 
dwelling at Rotterdam accompanied by Roger Wilson, his acquaint- 
ance, with Sarah Carey, single woman, from Moncksoon in England 
accompanied by Joanna Lyons her acquaintance", on 1 Nov. 1614. 

He was granted fifty acres of land 5 Mar. 1637-8, "lying on the 
east side of the Six Mile Brook . . . to be a farme belonging to 
the towne of Plymouth and to be called by the name of Lakenhame". 
From 1636-1641, he served as Assistant to the Governor. In 1636, 
he was given the right to erect a gristmill and the privilege of making 
salt. He traded with the Dutch, for several years. 

The New England Memorial says of him: "One of the principal 
passengers that came in her (the ship 'Little James') was Mr. John 
Jenney who was a godly though otherwise a plain man yet singular for 
publicness of spirit setting himself to seek and promote the common 
good of the plantation of New Plymouth who spent not only his part 
of the ship (being part owner therof) in the general concernment of 
the plantation, but also afterwards was a leading man in promoting 
the general interest of this colony. He lived many years in New Eng- 
land and fell asleep in the Lord". 

He made his Will, 28 Dec. 1643, and his inventory was filed 25 May 
1644 so he died between the two dates. "I John Jenney of New 
Plymouth ... do think meete to settle that estate the Lord in 
Mercy hath bestowed me. ... I do give unto my oldest sonne 
Samuel Jenney a double portion. ... I give unto Sarah my 
loving wife whom I ordain my Executrix. . . . Also whereas 
Abigail my oldest daughter had somewhat given her by her grand- 
mother and Henry Wood of Plymouth is a sutor to her in way of 
marriage my will is that if she the said Abigail will dwell one full 
year with Mr. Charles Chauncey of Scituate before her marriage 
. . . that then my said daughter Abigail . . . have my full

BENSON 



JOHN BENSON, aged thirty years, came in the ship " Confidence", 
11 Apr. 1638, from Caversham, in Oxfordshire, England. He brought 
with him, his wife Marah and two children, John and Mary, both 
under four years of age. He settled at Hingham but removed to 
Hull. In 1645, with Anthony Eames, and others of Hingham, he 
petitioned the General Court at Boston for leave to settle at White- 
head Hill on account of long standing differences in Hingham. This 
petition was refused but it was about this time that he went to Hull, 
where he is mentioned as a townsman in 1662, 1671, and 1676, and 
called John Benson, Senior. He was proprietor of the gristmill in 1 667. 

John Benson died in Hull, 13 Jan. 1678. His wife Marah or Mary 
died 14 Dec. 1681.

COX 



WILLIAM COX, the earliest ancestor to whom this family of Cox 
can be undoubtedly traced, was living in Newcastle County, Dela- 
ware, before 1721. He was probably there much earlier, and may 
possibly have been born there, but owing to the paucity of record it 
is impossible to prove it. The probability is that he was son of an 
earlier William Cox, who with wife Amy was also living in Newcastle 
County, and who conveyed land to this William Cox in 1734. This 
is so probable that it is assumed in the following pedigree to be cor- 
rect, although it is impossible to prove it. It is known that William 
Cox, the proven ancestor had at least one brother in this country and 
probably more. 

WILLIAM 1 COX, born probably about 1660, married Amy , 



and was living in Newcastle County, Delaware, in 1719. He is called 
both yeoman and laborer in different records. He is first mentioned 
in the land records in 1719, as the following deeds show: 

Newcastle County, Delaware, Deeds, S. 1, 32. 25 May 1719. William 
Cox, yeoman, Newcastle County, conveys to Jacob Stilly of same, land on the 
North side of Christiana Creek, formerly belonging to Justass Cock. Signed 
by mark. 

G. 1, 115. 10 May 1721. William Aubrey of London, Great Britain, 
merchant, and Letitia his wife, parties of the first part, Samuel Logan of Phil- 
adelphia, merchant, Rees Thomas of Philadelphia, parties of the second part 
and William Cocks of Newcastle County, Delaware, yeoman. The deed 
recites that William Penn granted the Manor of Henning, on the South side 
of Brandywine Creek, said Manor being partly in Newcastle County, Dela- 
ware, and partly in Chester County, Pennsylvania, to his daughter Letitia, 
who later became Letitia Aubrey, the wife of William Aubrey, and that it was 
part of this Manor that was conveyed to William Cocks and was located in 
Newcastle County. 

G. 1, 226. 10 July 1721. Another conveyance between the same parties 
for more land in the same Manor and in Newcastle County. 

H. 1, 25. 16 Nov. 1725. Henry Dickeson of Newcastle County, yeoman, 
and Ruth, his wife, conveys to William Cox of Newcastle County, yeoman; 
recites the deed by James Logan and Rees Thomas, Attorneys for William 
Aubrey and Letitia, his wife, dated 8 Nov. 1725, conveying land to Henry 
Dickeson being part of land located partly in Newcastle County, Delaware, 
and partly in Chester County, Pa., which William Penn granted to his daugh- 
ter Letitia Penn, and which land in this deed Henry Dickeson conveys to 
William Cox, being land in Newcastle County. 

I. 1, 149. 20 Nov. 1729. Robert Reynolds, of Cecil County, Maryland, 
cordwainer, son of Robert Reynolds, late of the city of Newcastle in New- 



ANCESTRAL LINES OF HARRIETT GRACE SCOTT 295 

castle County, Del., gentleman, deceased, and William Kellum of Brandy- 
wine Hundred, Newcastle County, yeoman, and Mary his wife, daughter of 
the said deceased, convey land in Beaver St., in the town of Newcastle and 
county of Newcastle to William Cox of Newcastle. 

K. 1, 293. 21 Dec. 1734. John Embly and Thomas Embly of Newcastle 
County convey to William Cox, laborer, of Newcastle County, land on the 
West side of the Delaware, on the North side of Christiana Creek. 

K. 1, 297. 4 Jan. 1734-5. William Cox of the town of Newcastle, laborer, 
and Amy, his wife convey to John VanLeavenigh, land on Beaver Street in 
the town of Newcastle, being the same land that was conveyed by Robert 
Reynolds, William Kellum and Mary his wife, on 16 May 1732, to the said 
William Cox. William and Amy Cox both sign by mark. 

K. 1, 295. 19 Feb. 1734-5. William Cox of Newcastle County, yeoman, 
and Amy his wife, convey to William Cox, farmer, of O'Casson (Hockesson in 
Mill Creek Hundred) land in Newcastle County on the Christiana Creek, 
being land conveyed to him, 21 Dec. 1734, by John and Thomas Embly. 
William and Amy Cox sign by mark. 

William Cox died before 15 Feb. 1742-3, for in that year there was 
filed in the Orphans' Court (C. 1, 18) by John Cox, administrator of 
William Cox, late of White Clay Creek Hundred, in Newcastle County, 
deceased, a paper showing that the personal estate of the said deceased 
was insufficient to pay all his debts, and praying that his real estate 
might be sold to satisfy his creditors. The Court ordered so much of 
his real estate sold as would be sufficient for the purpose and ordered 
the administrator to make a return to the Orphans' Court to be held 
the third Tuesday in April next and to make return and final settle- 
ment of said personal estate. John Cox, of White Clay Creek Hun- 
dred, administrator of the estate of his father, William Cox, deceased, 
conveyed to William Patterson on 18 May 1743, a portion of the Penn 
Tract. The deed speaks of the Orphans' Court proceedings but does 
not mention from whom William Cox acquired the land. (Deeds, 
N. 1, 544.) On 17 Aug. 1743 the Court records that John Cox 
administrator of the estate of William Cox, late of this county, 
deceased, came into court and produced the accounts of his adminis- 
tration and it was approved. He had left a balance of £4. 4. 4., to 
be disposed of according to law, and was discharged by the Court. 

The probable children of William Cox are: 

i. John 2 , b. about 1686, his father's executor. There are so many 
Coxes of the name of John that it is impossible to clear them, but 
it is probable that this John Cox m. Jane (Jones) Phillips, 
25-9m-1717 in Abington monthly meeting, was prominent in 
Warrenton meeting and finally removed to Cane Creek.* Ken- 
* There was another John Cox in the Kennett meeting, whose certificate from Old 
England was accepted there 10-2m-1710; he is called John Cox, Jr., and is called 
Junior until 1733. He was evidently an erring brother, for he is disciplined for drunken- 
ess and for not paying his debts, etc., and, in 1732, he with his wife are helped by the 
meeting, as they were in need, had no house to live in and the committee for their 
relief ordered one built for them. He was probably the John who married 8-8m-1720 
Hannah Jettkins. As a John Cox, Sr., is not mentioned in the Kennett records it seems 
as if he were called "junior" because of the presence of John, son of William. 



296 SCOTT GENEALOGY 

nett meeting records the granting of a certificate to John Cox 
to Cane Creek in North Carolina, 10-7m-1755. He probably 
had son John, and others. (Benjamin who m. Martha Garret- 
son may have been his son.) 

ii. Richard 2 , b. about 1688, m. (1) before 26-2m-1712, Margaret 
Potts, who died in 1725. He m. (2), then of Londongrove, yeo- 
man, 15-10m-1726, Elizabeth Scarlett, and removed to War- 
renton monthly meeting. He had children, by first wife, 
Nathaniel and others; by second wife, Anna, Sarah, Richard, 
Jonathan, Joseph and Benjamin, John. 

iii. William, b. about 1692; m. Catherine . 

iv. Thomas, b. about 1694; m. Elizabeth Fincher, by whom he had 
three children: Hannah, m. James Musgrove, 13-4m-1739; 
Rebecca, m. James Fraser, 22-8m-1740; Isaac, m. Olive Under- 
wood, 27-9m-1746. Abington m. m. granted a certificate to 
Thomas Cox and wife to settle within verge of Nottingham and 
Newgarden m. m. 28-2m-1729. Mary Newlin of Chester Co., 
Pa., in 1730 leaves in Will, to sister Elizabeth Cox's three chil- 
dren, and makes father, John Fincher, and brother, Francis 
Fincher, exes.; and John Fincher of Londongrove, in 1746, be- 
queaths to "Thomas Cox, living over Susquehanna, £5 for use 
of his daughter Rebecca, wife of James Fraiser". Thomas seems 
to have lived in Manchester and Londongrove and to have 
attended Warrenton m. m. at one time. Isaac Cox was granted 
a certificate for himself and wife Olive, to North Carolina. 

v. Amy, b. about 1698; m. in 1719 John Allen at Kennett. Later 
she requested a certificate to New Garden m. m. 5 month 1728. 
There were probably others. 

WILLIAM 2 COX (William 1 ), was born probably about 1692, 
died in Orange Co., N. C, between 20 Jan. and 15 Feb. 1767; married 
about 1716, Catherine , who died before him. 

William Cox lived in Newcastle County, Delaware, but so near 
the Pennsylvania line that it seems probable that part of his farm 
extended into this latter state. The earliest meeting records extant 
of this section are the Kennett or "Newark in Kennett". There was 
an earlier meeting in Newcastle County but the records appear to 
have vanished and there is little in the Kennett records until about 
the time this family emigrated to North Carolina. About 1750 a 
large number of Quakers removed to North Carolina and settled in 
various sections of the state but chiefly in the central portion. Wil- 
liam Cox evidently removed there about 1752, and settled in the Deep 
River section which then fell in Orange County, but afterwards was 
ft part of Grayson County. 

In 1730, the monthly meeting was held at the home of William Cox, 
at Hockessen in Mill Creek Hundred, in Newcastle County. The 
first settlers were John Baldwin, William Cox and the Irish Friends, 



ANCESTRAL LINES OF HARRIETT GRACE SCOTT 297 

Henry and John Dixon. (Immigration of Irish Quakers into Penn- 
sylvania, p. 121.) In the account of William l Cox, is given a deed 
from William Cox and Amy to this William of Hockessen in 1734 

(p. 295). 

Newcastle County deeds, I, 1, 386. 16 Nov. 1730. John Garrett of New 
Castle County, yeoman, and Margaret his wife to William Cox, yeoman, of 
Newcastle County. Deed recites the William Penn grant to his daughter, 
Letitia Aubrey, etc., and deed from Logan and Thomas to William Mt. 
Macken, which land William Mt. Macken and Jennet his wife conveyed to 
John Garrett, and which John Garret now conveys to William Cox. (Land, 
part of the Manor of Henning.) 

N. 1, 264. 25 Sept. 1741. Benjamin Fredd of New Garden, Chester Co., 
yeoman, and Deborah his wife, convey to William Cox, yeoman, land that 
was formerly conveyed by William Penn to his daughter, and by the daugh- 
ter's attorney to Mt. Macken, and by him to John Garret, and by him to 
Benjamin Fredd. 

N. 1, 281. 16 Nov. 1741. William Cox, yeoman, and Catherine, his wife 
convey to John Dixson, part of the Penn tract, being same lands conveyed to 
said Cox, by deed N. 1, 264, from Benjamin Fredd and wife. This deed is 
signed by William Cox, not by mark. 

In spite of the fact that William Cox must have been a member 
of the Kennett meeting for some years there is little mention of him in 
the records. Several of his children's marriages are given, and the 
births of some grandchildren. It is evident that he went to North 
Carolina before 1754 and it may have been earlier than 1752; his 
son William was given a certificate there in 1752, and they probably 
went there together. However, he was not granted a certificate there 
until 1758, although he had asked for one. 

From our Monthly meeting of Newark held at Kennett in the County of 
Chester Province of Pennsylvania 7 th of 1 st m° 1758 to the Monthly meeting 
at Cane Creek in North Carolina. 

Whereas application was made to our Meeting on behalf of William Cox 
sen. for a certificate to recomend him to the care of your meeting, he being 
for several years removed within the compass thereof — These may therefore 
certify you on his behalf, that after the usual inquirie made We find that he 
left these parts in reputable circumstances was a diligent attender of meetings 
for many years, and as a member amongst us we think him worthy of the 
notice and care of friends — So with desire for his temporal and eternal welfare 
and the prosperity of the Churches of Christ everywhere, We conclude in the 
Gosple of fellowship and remain your loving friends. Signed in and on behalf 
of our said meeting. 

On 11 June 1754, William Cdx received two grants of land, one of 
520 acres on the east side of Deep River, and the other the same num- 
ber of Acres on the west side of the river (Land Grants of N. C, 
14 : 363, 377) . On the same day he received an additional grant on 
the west side of 400 acres (14: 378); 13 May 1755, he was granted 

20 



298 SCOTT GENEALOGY 

586 acres on the west side (14: 377); 14 June 1756, he asked for 350 
acres "Beginning at three Sweet Gums by New Hope", which was 
granted, 1 Aug. 1760 (14: 380); 13 Nov. 1756, he received 487 acres 
on little Brush Creek (14: 368); 5 Nov. 1757, two grants were made 
him, one of 205 acres on both sides of Deep River and the other 375 
acres on the head of Cox's Mill Creek. Besides these grants he pur- 
chased land in the Deep River Section. 

Orange County Deeds, 1: 86. 10 Sept. 1755. James Denny of Orange 
Co., N. C, sells to William Cox of same county, 70 acres, part of a tract 
granted to Denny by the Earl of Granville. Wit: Wm Reed John McGee. 

1: 44. 4 Sept. 1755. William Piggott, sadler, conveys to William Cox, 
planter, certain lands granted him by the Earl of Granville, 100 acres. 

4: 558. "Indenture made the 5th November in the year of our Lord, one 
thousand seven hundred and fifty seven, Between the Right honourable John, 
Erie Granville, Visecount Cartret & Barron Cartret of Hawns in the County 
of Bedford in the Kingdom of grate Brittain Lord president of his Majesties 
most honourable privy Council & knight of the Most Noble Order of the Gar- 
ter on the one part and William Cox, in trust for Samuel Allen, of Orange 
County in the provence of North Carolina on the other part ... all 
that tract or parcel of Land Lying & being in the parish of St. Matthews in 
the County of Orange on Both sides of Cockses Creek the Watters of Deep 
River, Beginning at Harmon Cocks Corner", for yearly rent of 15 shillings, 
etc. Signed "Granville". 

William Cox became by grant and purchase the owner of a very 
large estate, and with the holdings of his sons, who also received 
Colonial grants, must have owned a large section of the county. The 
local name of this section was Cox's Mills and it was evidently at 
some distance from the Cane Creek meetinghouse, for in 1762 the 
Freeman of the Lower settlement in Deep River request privilege of 
meetings which was granted, but 2d-llm-1765, a complaint was made 
that these meetings were dropped, which Cane Creek meeting investi- 
gated and finding the report was true the Indulgence was removed 
2-12m-1765. William Cox and his five sons were sturdy pioneers 
and for Quakers, none too meek. Some of the first mutterings of 
the Revolution were heard in this section and before William's death, 
meetings in opposition to the Crown officers were held in which the 
Cox boys were prominent. The leader of the opposition, Herman 
Husbands, was not at first a Friend, but became one. The Cane 
Creek Meeting records that "at a monthly meeting held the 7 th of 
2 mo 1767, William Cox, William Cox jr., Isaac Vernon, Isaac Cox, 
Samuel Cox, Solomon Cox and Jacob Grey complained of in the 9 th 
mo last for attending the disorderly marriage of Emy Allen, now Hus- 
bands and after repeated labour with each of them this meeting now 
disowns each of them". They were all reinstated later. 

The men who thus early resisted tyranny were called "The Regu- 
lators", because in the beginning they became affiliated in order to 



ANCESTRAL LINES OF HARRIETT GRACE SCOTT 299 

try and obtain regular and less extortionate fees from the Crown 
officers, but their movement grew until armed resistance was offered 
the government in the battle of Alamance, in 1771. The prisoners 
taken by Governor Tryon were held as traitors and some of them 
condemned to death, but later a petition was sent to Earl Hillsboro 
from Fort George, New York, asking him to pardon certain men 
convicted of High Treason at Hillsboro Superior Court and among 
these men was Harmon 3 Cox. This man was William's eldest son 
and is known in History as "the Regulator". It was at the Cox 
Homestead that the meetings of the Regulators were held. It is not 
probable that William 2 was very active for he must have been over 
seventy years of age, but his three sons Harmon 3 , William 3 and 
Solomon 3 appear again and again in the deliberations. (Colonial 
Records of N. C.) 

20 Aug. 1766. At a meeting of the Neighborhood of Deep River, 
it was unanimously agreed to appoint William Cox and William 
Moffit to attend a general meeting on the first Monday before Nov.

appointed to draw up a petition of Regulators and to meet at house 
of Harmon Cox on Deep River. 

7 May 1768. William Cox testifies at Orange Court that he paid 
£2 10s. 4d., for letters of Administration, last February, was a year 
at Court and never has received them although application has been 
made by sundry messengers for them. (This is evidently his father's 
estate.)

tificate from Newark in Kennett to Cane Creek with his brother 
Solomon (p. 303). 



ANCESTRAL LINES OF HARRIETT GRACE SCOTT 303 

SOLOMON 3 COX was born in Newcastle Co., Delaware, probably 
in Hockessing, about 1730, and died in Ross Co., Ohio, in 1812. He 

married between 1753 and 1761, Naomi , who died after 1795 

and probably before 1799. It is possible that he may have married 
first a Ruth but there is nothing to prove this.* 

Solomon Cox evidently removed with his father to Cane Creek. 
In fact the whole family may have gone together but did not apply 
for their certificates until they were individually sure of staying there. 
On 7-4m-1753 application was made to Newark in Kennett m. m. 
for a certificate for Solomon and Thomas Cox to be joined to a 
monthly meeting in North Carolina. 

"From our Monthly meeting of Newark held at Kennett in the County of 
Chester & Province of Pensilvania the 5 th of y e 5 th mo 1753 — 

"To y e Monthly meeting of Cane Creek or elsewhere in North Carolina 

these Dear Friends Application being made to our meeting for some 

lines by way of certificate from us to you in behalf of Solomon & Thomas Cox 
they being about to move from amongst us in order to settle within the verge 
of your meeting or some other monthly meeting of friends in North Carolina 

* Samuel Cox, son of Solomon and Ruth, married Holly Springs, 9-lm-1783, Lydia 
Hadley, dau. of Jeremiah and Mary Hadley. Wit: Ruth, Solomon, jr., Nathan Dixon, 
Solomon Cox, Thomas Cox, Sarah Cox, Harmon Cox, Jane Cox. If Solomon the 
father, who must have been born by 1740, was identical with Solomon 3 , it is probable 
that Ruth would be called in this record " Ruth, deceased". The two men are probably 
not the same. There is still another Solomon Cox who appears in the records of Cane 
Creek Meeting. He had a wife Amy, and although this name is used interchangeably 
with Naomi, the two families do not appear to be the same. The Cane Creek meeting 
"enters a complaint against Solomon Cox for purchasing & selling without consent of 
friends and they were to be in Disunity with him until he condemn his proceedings and 
his wife and children are to sign also", 5-2m-1780; he complied and was forgiven. 
"There was a certificate made out at this meeting (2-12m-1780) on the second month 
last for Emey Cox and her children, family of Solomon Cox, and sent to Warrenton 
m. m. in Pennsylvania and by accounts received from there they have removed from 
thence and settled within the Verge of New Garden m. m. in N. C. and for that reason 
friends of Warrenton have returned the certificate to this meeting. Her certificate 
ordered sent to New Garden m. m." (Women's Minutes.) 

New Garden m. m. (Women's Minutes.) "Certificate produced for Amey Cox and 
Eight of her children, Mary, Ann, Solomon, Absalom, Christopher, Thomas, Stephen 
& Amey, accepted 30-6m-1781." 

Warrenton m. m. "5-8m-1779. Solomon Cox has taken the Test proposed by 
those in power." " A certificate was sent to Warrenton M. M. from Cane Creek, N. C, 
for Solomon Cox, his wife and family dated 12-6-1778: also one for Christopher Hussey, 
but on considering their circumstances, it appears most safe to appoint some Friends 
to inform them and to inquire into their Life and Conversation since they came from 
that meeting." "Solomon Cox, wife and family. Certificate from Cane Creek, N. C, 
12-6-1778, (sent by that meeting) : Their conduct to be inquired into since they came 
from that meeting (2-13-1779). 5-8-1779, report, that he has purchased a negro and 
disposed of him; also has taken the Test and Martha Cox his daughter is married to her 
1st cousin. It is concluded to send their certificate back." Solomon Cox's wife and 
children (except one) Certificate from Cane Creek, 8-12-1780, but "they being removed 
from us it is thought best to send it back to that Meeting". It is of course possible 
that Solomon, with wife Ruth, may be the same man as Solomon with wife Amy, who 
must also have been born about 1740, but it is impossible that Solomon with wife Amy 
could be identical with Solomon and wife Naomi, for the lists of children are totally 
dissimilar. In 1778 or about that time, family tradition shows Solomon * to be about 
to remove to Virginia.

These may therefore Certifie on their behalf that usual inquirie hath 



been made concerning them and we do not find but that they have been of 
orderly conversation, frequenters of our Religious meetings for worship. 
Solomon also being clear from all marriage engagements as far as we know. 
Thomas being but young in years less may be said concerning him, & as such 
we recommend them to your Christian care & oversight, Delivering their 
growth and prosperity in the unchangeable truth we conclude and remain 

your friends & Brethren Signed in & on behalf of said meeting by ." 

Cane Creek records that Solomon and Thomas Cox [produced a certificate 
from the monthly meeting of Newark in Kennett, 5-5-1753. 

Warrenton monthly meeting: "Solomon Cox produced a certificate from 
Cane Creek, 8-11-1759, dated 6-2-1759". "Solomon Cox being about to 
return to North Carolina this meeting gave him a few lines on the back of his 
certificate.' * This may refer to the other Solomon Cox but he would be rather 
young (p. 303). 

With John, Harmon, Naomi and Hannah Cox, Solomon witnessed 
a marriage at Cane Creek in 1761. He received land from his father 
in 1767. In 1768, he appears in the troubles with the Regulators, 
signing a petition on 30 April, in that year and having a claim in 
Court in 1773. There is no record of active participation in the 
Revolutionary struggle by Solomon Cox, but David Fanning, a noted 
Tory, made his headquarters near Cox's Mills, and in his diary 
(1775-1783) he speaks of "the battle at Coxes Mills, Deep River 
near Chatham Court House". 10 Dec. 1781, Col. Isaacs formed 
his Camp at Coxe's Mills in order to take Fanning but was unsuc- 
cessful and after Isaac's departure Fanning "burnt Capt. Coxe's 
house and his Fathers". In 1782, Fanning tried to arrange terms of 
surrender and asks that the two Coxe's Mills be freed from Americans. 
One can hardly expect that Solomon was not active in some of this 
warfare, even if, as a good Quaker, he was not enrolled as a soldier. 

There is a tradition in the family that he went to western Virginia 
before the War, surveyed a plot of land and asked for the grant of it, 
and made up his mind to remove there, which he did at the close of 
that memorable struggle. He settled on a tract of land, which may 
have been a grant from the government or which he may have pur- 
chased. He applied in 1783 for a large grant of land in the same 
section which was granted him but the grant was not issued until 
1793. The original parchment signed by Henry Lee, then Governor 
of Virginia, (p. 305) is still in existence and is owned by Rufus Edgar 
Cox, of Galax, Va., who also possesses the deed of gift from Solomon 
Cox to Enoch Cox, his eldest son, of this same property, in 1799. 
Just before the grant was signed, he sold the other property and after 
establishing Enoch on the home farm, he went back to Chatham 
County, N. C, where he remained for awhile. He then removed to 
Ross County, Ohio, where his son Joseph had gone earlier and died 
at the home of this son in 1812. The property in Virginia was in

that part of the state that was in 1776 in Montgomery County, fell 
into Wythe, when that County was set off in 1790, and into Grayson 
in 1793. It is in a very beautiful mountainous region. 

Guilford Co., Deeds, 1 : 340. 27 July 1774. Solomon Cox and Naomi 
his wife, of Guilford Co., N. C, convey to Walter Ashmore of Ashton Co., 
N. C, for £300 Proclamation Money, land in Guilford Co., N. C, on the fork

any others is unlikely.

Chatham County N. C, conveys to William Cox of Randolph County, 
N. C, tract of land in Chatham County, on little Brush Creek on Deep River, 
containing 300 acres, part of land willed to the said Solomon Cox by his father 
William Cox, who obtained the same from the Earl of Granville by grant 
dated 13 Nov. 1756.

ing 187 acres more or less, being the remaining part of a tract of land willed 
to Solomon Cox by his father William Cox and descended by inheritance to 
the aforesaid Enoch, William and Ruth, and Joseph and the rest of the heirs. 

A Solomon Cox appears in the Census of 1790 as of Hillsboro Dis- 
trict, Chatham Co., N. C, with three males above sixteen, none 
below, and three females, and Samuel of same place, with one male 
above sixteen, one below sixteen, and three females. These were 
probably the sons of Solomon 3 , who was in Virginia, where the Census 
is lost, in 1790.

ENOCH 4 COX (Solomon 3 , William 2 , William 1 ), was born in the 
Deep River section, Chatham Co., N. C, about 1757, and died in 
Grayson Co., Va., 28 Mar. 1840. He married before l-9m-1781, 
Mary Mackey, of the Yadkin River District in North Carolina. 
On that date the Cane Creek meeting disowned him for marrying out. 
She died in 1829, aged seventy-six years. He married (2) Sally 
Stoneman, daughter of Joshua and Elizabeth Stoneman, born 12-7m-

1797. The Stonemans were members of the Mt. Pleasant m. m. in 
Grayson County, Va. Sally (Stoneman) Cox died about 1855. 

It is evident that Enoch was received back into the fold after his 
marriage and was again disowned for conduct unpleasing to the 
Quakers in 1793. There are no further items concerning him on 
the Friends Records of Cane Creek. He is supposed to have been a 
member of the Chestnut Creek meeting, Grayson Co., Va., but the 
book contains no mention of him or his family. With his wife Mary, 
he is buried in the yard of this meeting house, all of which is gone 
except the stone step. Stones have been erected to the memory of 
the pair.

They sleep together on the top of the hill, while their descendants 
fill the valleys at its foot. It is beautiful, farming country, the red 
soil is fertile and the people who dwell on the banks of the creeks that 
flow into the New River are almost entirely of the race of Cox. 

Grayson County Deeds, 1 : 269. 24-9m-1799. Enoch Cox and Mary his

land in Grayson Co. on Goodwin's Creek a branch of Chestnut Creek, a 
branch of New River.

whereon the said Enoch Cox, Sen., now lives, in Grayson Co., on Cole Creek 
a branch of Chestnut Creek, a branch of New River, but if the said Enoch 
Cox, Jr., should die without an heir to his body then the land to revert to the 
said Enoch Cox, Sen., again.

tract of land in Grayson Co., on Crooked Creek, a branch of New River.

son Jeremiah Cox, land where "I now live". 

8: 13. 1 May 1838. Enoch Cox Sen., and Sally his wife of Grayson Co., 
convey land to John K. Suncock. 

At the time Enoch Cox made his Will, he was very old, probably 
about eighty-one. In some way in his Will he invalidated the title 
of the property conveyed to Jeremiah Cox and so a friendly suit was 
taken to clear the title.

each generation. It seems therefore that Nathan went to Ohio, 
married Anne* there and then returned to Grayson Co., with his 
wife, for his first three children were born in Virginia. 

Later, 6 Aug. 1808, he sold land there, and about 1811 removed to

DRUMMOND 



Extended research has failed to trace this Drummond line further 
back than a widow, Mary Drummond, who was living at 274 S. Second 
Street, Philadelphia, in 1804. She was a teacher and died after 1810. 
She had the following children, and perhaps others. 

Children: 

1. i. Benjamin 2 , b. 23 July 1775, Philadelphia, Pa.; m. Mary Ann 

Kerns. 

2. ii. Josiah, b. abt. 1780; m. Hannah McCalla. 

3. iii. John Kay, b. abt. 1785; m. Hannah Foster. 

iv. Mary, b. abt. 1787; m. 31 Jan. 1805, John Lytle. 

1. BENJAMIN 2 DRUMMOND ( l ), born in Philadel- 
phia, Pa., 23 July 1775, died in Jefferson, Ohio, 7 Jan. 1837, 
aged sixty-two years, six months and fourteen days; married at St. 
George's Methodist Episcopal Church, Philadelphia, 21 Dec. 1797, 
Mary Ann Kerns (called Anna Carnes in the marriage record), 
daughter of parents unknown, born in Pennsylvania 30 July 1776, died 
in Liberty Township, near Londonderry, Ohio, 23 Oct. 1835, aged 
fifty-eight years, two months and twenty-three days. 

He removed from Philadelphia to Ross Co., Ohio, about 1811-16 
and settled on a farm in Liberty Township, about two and a half 
miles west of Londonderry, where his youngest son was born. This 
son inherited the farm, lived there all his life, and died under the same 
roof that sheltered his birth. 

The following letter was written by Benjamin Drummond a few 
years before he died: 

Jefferson Township, 
Ross Co. O. 
March 23 1831 
Dear Children: — 

I enjoy one more privilege to take my pen in my hand to send you a few 
lines to inform you that we are all well at present except myself. My health, 
at present, is not very good, by a bad cold I caught last Saturday at William 
Kerns' barn raising, which was a very cold day. I hope these few lines may 
find you all in good health. I have nothing prosperous to write to you about 
this world of ours. I feel my bodily strength fails daily grows weakly and I 
am crumbling away to my mother dust. The time and place that knows me 
now, will ere long know me no more but glory to God! I hope that after this 
old body of mine has mouldered away to its mother dust, that I shall rise in 

21 



314 SCOTT GENEALOGY 

the full vigor of youth to praise my Redeemer, where I shall never grow old 
nor weary. Now my children my last advise (perhaps) to you is, that your 
first and great concern is to make your peace, calling and election sure — that 
if we never see each other in this world, we may see each other where parting 
will be no more.

APPENDIX 



SCOTT GENEALOGY 321 



There seems so strong a possibility that John Scott of Roxbury, 
may be identical with John, son of Benjamin Scott of Cambridge and 
Rowley, and is most certainly not the son of Benjamin Scott of Brain- 
tree, that it has been considered best to put, in an appendix, the first 
two generations of descendants of Benjamin Scott of Braintree, and 
six generations of descendants of Benjamin Scott of Rowley. The 
two Benjamin Scotts above mentioned are confused by Savage and 
other writers, but the records prove that there were two of the name. 
The supposition that John Scott, son of Benjamin of Rowley, was 
that John Scott of Ipswich who died in 1720, is disproved by the Will 
of the latter,* which shows plainly that he was not of kin to anyone of 
his name in New England. 

There is also placed in this appendix a slight account of a Joseph 
Scott of Rowley, who may be of kin to Benjamin Scott. 

* 4 June 1720. John Scott now resident in Ipswich, weak in body, made his Will. 
He gives to friend Thomas Miller of Boston, to his two cousins, John Wattson and his 
brother, the two sons of Thomas Wattson, wheelwright, of St. Andrews in the Shire of 
Fyffe, Scotland, the residue. Exes., Mr. Henry Dearing and Mr. Stephen Boutineau, 
of Boston. Signed in presence of William Wilson, Mary Staniford, J. Staniford. 
Proved 14 June 1720. 

His inventory and accounts prove him to have been a trader on a large scale and 
chiefly with people in Boston. The inventory amounted to about £330. 



BENJAMIN SCOTT OF BRAINTREE, MASS. 



BENJAMIN 1 SCOTT was an early resident of Braintree, Mass. 
He died before 1647, for in that year, on the 21 September, an 
inventory of the goods of widow Scott, late wife of Benjamin Scott of 
Braintree, deceased, and now the wife of John Harbour of Braintree, 
was filed in Court, and Harbour gave a bond to secure payment to 
the children of their shares. On the 13 July 1654, administration 
on the estate of Benjamin Scott, late of Braintree, deceased, was 
granted to John Harbour and Hannah, his wife, late the wife of the 
said Benjamin Scott, in behalf of herself and her children. The 
estate was ordered divided: to the widow, one third; to the eldest 
son, a double portion; and to the rest of the children a single portion 
at marriage or at fourteen years. (Suffolk Co. Probate, 1 : 173.) 

Hannah, the wife of Benjamin Scott, who married second, John 
Harbour, died before 1677. 17 May 1677, administration on the 
estate of Hannah Harbour late of Braintree, deceased, was granted 
to Peter Scott and Christopher Webb. Her inventory was filed the 
23 July 1677, and Christopher Webb swore it was a true inventory 
of his late mother-in-law, Hannah Harbour, deceased. (Suffolk Co. 
Probate, 12: 18.) 

Children: 

i. Hannah 2 , b. abt. 1638; m. 18 Jan. 1654, Christopher Webb. 

ii. Benjamin, b. abt. 1640, probably never married. His Will was 
proved, 29 Apr. 1684, and seems to show that there is no connec- 
tion between this Braintree family and John Scott of Roxbury, 
as John must have been born before 1655 and would have been 
a brother of this Benjamin. The Will is as follows: 

"I, Benjamin Scott being weake in my body yet . . . whole 
in my mind ... for that outward Estate w * 1 God hath 
graciously given me, I give & dispose it into the hands of my 
Brother Peter Scott to enjoy . . . until his eldest Son is of 
one and twenty yeares of age, He then to have the one halfe of 
his houses and Lands as entayled Lands from him to his heirs 
forever. Or if God remove him by death without heirs, to fall 
to the next heir ... of the s d Peter Scott. And if Ben- 
jamin Scott, the Son of Peter Scott, live to enjoy my houses 
and Lands after his Fathers decease, then he shall pay to his

Rowley, Mass., between 6 June and 26 Sept. 1671; married before 
1643,* Margaret Stephenson, date and place of birth unknown, 
executed as a witch, in Rowley, 22 Sept. 1692.

iii. John, b. 2 July 1648, living in 1671, but no further trace of him

who married in 1672, in Roxbury, and who named his children, 
Hannah, (his wife was Hannah Duncan), John, Sarah, Mary, 
Margaret and Joseph. He had no son Benjamin, but a grand- 
son of his bore that name. The probability is that the two Johns 
are the same but nothing has been found to prove it.

Benjamin Scott, with his wife Margaret, were early residents of 
Cambridge, Mass., whence they removed to Rowley before 1651 and 
where he was granted land in 1664, having previously purchased land 
in Haverhill.

that date. "I, Benjamin Scott Being very weeake of Body but of
